It does indeed fix the problem. Thanks.  My workstation has no
local security concerns, so I'm willing to risk my security.

Here is the simple workaround for using the .debs:
*WARNING*  You are overriding the good judgement of the Debian
maintainer and opening up a security hole for local exploits.

# apt-get source esound
# cd esound*
# perl -pi -e "s/esd_use_tcpip = 1/esd_use_tcpip = 0/" esd.c 
# fakeroot -- debian/rules binary
# cd ..
# su dpkg -i esound
# su dpkg -i esound-alsa
