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 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?
