Are you sure that KDE (especially kmix) isn't remuting the mixer on start?
While mpg123 is playing something artsd won't be able to take over the
DSP-Device but to adjust the mixer settings. Open kmix again and
recheck the settings.

If there's something wrong with your alsa modules dmesg or
/var/log/messages could be a good starting point as well.
What does mpg123 say when you start it _after_ kde is loaded? Is it
simply freezing doing nothing?
Try (as root):
# lsof /dev/snd/*
# lsof /dev/sound/*
to see what programs are accessing the sound devices.
I'm running a FM801 card by myself never seeing any such problems.
