Hmm, you might be right but:

1) I installed miniAudicle on my wifes eee running a vanilla ubuntu 9.04 
and I never had a problem here.

2) He didn't have any other applications running at the time.

3) I wasn't able to successfully run the mini even a single time.

Wouldn't a solution be to remove pulseaudio? I didn't hear much good 
about it over at linux-audio-users, many say the first thing they do 
upon installation is to remove pulseaudio...
