2.2.0 bug

In ver 2.2.0 and previous versions, audacity will crash when I use shift-right arrow to move the cursor while playing.
It only happens when I hold those keys down for quick movement through a large file. Single hits will work normally.

I use linux arch (xfce4).

Are you using PulseAudio for playback?
Try selecting the appropriate "hw" option in the device toolbar as the playback device.

I do use pulseaudio. It plays ok. Pressing shift-right arrow works if pressed once, but crashes if I do multiple shift-right too quickly.

additional info:
When run from a terminal I get the error:
audacity: src/hostapi/alsa/pa_linux_alsa.c:3641: PaAlsaStreamComponent_BeginPolling: Assertion `ret == self->nfds' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

Also, if I change the output stream, I get no audio, but the crash doesn't happen.
