OpenJDK and PulseAudio

When using OpenJDK on Linux with PulseAudio a javasound audio device called "PulseAudio Mixer" shows up. Selecting this in Frinika gives very choppy and unusable audio for the time being. However if using the latest version of Ubuntu (and possibly other Linux'es), this provides an ALSA device called "default" that is really a PulseAudio device. By selecting the "default" javasound audio device Frinika will use PulseAudio (through ALSA), and you'll be able to play audio from other programs and Frinika simultaneously.
