I don't know which sound system OM uses, but i think in debian we could
use many different systems. Default is only alsa installed and nothing
more. I also installed the oss-wrapper to get oss based applications

The coordinates are produced by a kernel module which is the same for
debian and OM. So i don't think that would be the problem. Bug 1244 is
not relevant because debian doesn't use xglamo. At the moment it uses
framebuffer or something like this. There do exist a xglamo package in
the debian repositories but i didn't find any usefull informations about
how useful it is.

As far as i know, without xglamo there is no way of rotating/scaling
without restarting the whole x11 system
