Bugs filed now for these (or info added to existing bugs).

BTW, it looks as esound is in desperate need of a new maintainer.
Last upload in 2006, new upstream versions available and loads of open 
(some trivial packaging) bugs.

Also, the package has had uploads of new upstream versions to Ubuntu 
without getting similar uploads in Debian, but even there not by its 
Debian maintainer who AFAIK is an Canonical employee. Go figure...
