Aha! (esound and kernel 2.4)

Wow!  I can confirm that.  I did this:

$ apt-get source esound
$ tar fvvxz esound-0.2.20.orig
$ cd esound-0.2.20.orig
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
$ make
$ make install
$ /etc/init.d/gdm restart

Then all problems disappeared!

So, apparently the switch from a unix to a BSD socket doesn't agree well
with the use of kernel 2.4.0-testXX.  The 2.2 kernel doesn't care which
kind of socket I use; esd works fine either way on kernel 2.2.

What's up with BSD sockets in the latest kernel, or at least what's up with
esd's use of them?
