WSPR / Xubuntu / SignaLink USB / Locking screen crash fix

I thought my USB bus was resetting, but it turns out when you lock the screen in Xubuntu it prevents access to audio devices which in turns caused the WSPR client to crash when trying to access the device.

http://xubuntu.org/news/screen-locking-in-xubuntu-14-04/ has a few ways to fix it, I opted for just adding my user to the audio group since my PC is single user.

Hopefully this helps someone.
