Crossfading does _not_ require hardware mixing. It requires mixing. This can 
be a hardware or software implementation. On Linux, ALSA automatically 
provides software mixing via DMix as a fallback. Other operating systems 
provide similar facilities.

If this does not work right on your box, then your setup is simply broken. The 
problem is not with Amarok.
