I assume you have the standard case-insensitive filesystem. I first  
had the case-sensitive one, but changed, because it seemed more  
unstable. So I do not know what happens on that.

Perian possibly has a bug in it, so that it looks uninstalled when  
some parts of it. So assuming that you have it installed after a  
reboot, uninstall it, reboot, take it away from /Library/ 
PreferencePanes/, reboot.

Then run Mac OS X 10.5.8 Combo:
If the sound seems OK after that, also go to Disk Utilities and run  
"Repair Permissions" on the boot volume. - In my testing, it does not  
change the sound, but it is good to do it.

There may be other components causing the problem, but latest Flip4Mac  
and JackPilot are OK. At least on my computer. :-)
