I'm running AMD64, ATI, Via, Debian, Testing, KDE.
I don't observe your problem #1 so I suspect some other interaction.

Check your audio configuration for KDE; on my system it grabs /dev/dsp
to make desktop sounds such as the startup noise and then relinquishes
it sometime later.  If the desktop has not relinquished the soundcard,
FGFS is unable to get control of the device in order to do the audio.

On slower computers, you might want to log in using a plain xterm in order
to get the KDE program elements out of memory.  They tend to hang around
and steal video and processor resources ... and refuse to get swapped.

Curt:  Is the version of openal in Debian's unstable finally new enough ?

Depends which radio is generating the morse,
and what the callsign of the associated transmitter is.
I don't know what the default configuration is, offhand.

... hope that helps ...
