Hehe, it wasn't entirely guesswork :)
I have had numerous difficulties with the sound server on GNOME before -
and recently decided (having had some quality time with strace and gdb)
that the easiest way to get GNOME starting for the users at work is to
simply add them to a central NIS audio group than to faff around with
modifying the default setup on each box to fix screwy brokeness. If
users cannot access the sound device then things get confsckulated.
Personally I would like to shoot the sound "service" :P
