Did it work before if while you were playing something in XMMS?

You shouldn't restart artsd as you aren't terminating at, only suspending it, 
it will automatically unsuspend. You should run "artsshell suspend" as the 
user which is running artsd (use su), and if the "Exchange security and 
reference info over the X11 server" option is set the DISPLAY variable will 
need to be set.
