Default BUG: Sound output sporadically toggles between line out and headset

Sound output sporadically toggles between the line out on my Mac and my Plantronics Headset (USB), even though Ventrilo is set to always output through Plantronics Headset. This problem was introduced prior to Ventrilo 3.x and I'm not certain whether the issue is tied to Ventrilo, the Mac OS, or some sort of configuration.

I've tested this on a Macbook Pro and a Mac Pro and do not see the problem. I see this issue on my PowerMac G5 Quad.

All three machines are running Leopard 10.5.2 and Ventrilo 3.01. I've wiped the PowerMac G5 Quad clear of Ventrilo and have reinstalled (cleared config and app). I've tried a different Plantronics USB headset and another USB port on my G5. I still see the problem on the G5.

The only way I can get sound to consistently output through my headset is to set OS System Preferences to output sound to Plantronics Headset instead of the Line out. This isn't a good workaround because I want non-Ventrilo sound output to go to line out.

Any thoughts on what may be wrong and what I can do to fix it on my G5 machine?
