Hi Adam,
Actually, I found that 0.5.12 worked better with the AWE64 than any of 
the later releases.  However, I now have 3 machines 2 linux and 1 
Windblows that all use SBLIVE!  Since the SBLIVE! has multi channel 
capability and only sells for about $28.00, I'd recommend replacing your 
AWE64.  I'm running alsa 0.9.0rc3 on my linux machines with the SBLIVE! 
with absolutely no problem.
