OK, problem isolated. Flash does not play well with others, the player
grabs ALSA, so maybe something is using it when flash tries to play
audio. (For me with my old pnp sound card, the dmix plugin was the answer.)
Just a thought, my cat /dev/sndstat output includes:
Type 10: ALSA emulation
There is a command something like <lsof /dev/dsp>, but not that, to
report what's using the sound driver or device. Uh.. time to turn it
over to the experts.
