Well, intermittent means to me that it's just good enough that it works
most of the time, or fails only under special conditions. But sounds
like your card's probably OK. (Or there are things the Windows driver
does with the hardware that the Linux driver doesn't - control register
settings, work around for known-to-vendor-but-not-necessarily-documented
quirk, like "Don't set bit 7 of this register".)
Not that you have this problem, but I discovered that my powered
external USB2 hub induces noise when my USB sound card runs through it.
No noise at all when the card is connected directly. Probably my hub (a
cheap one) has grounding issues.
