You can have xmms use a different output plugin for each user...  Obviously you can
only use one audio output plugin at a time...  Try setting the output plugin to OSS
as non root and see if that clears it up... Although unless you apply Ian's DMAsound
patch you won't be able to play anything but mp3s via OSS (AFAICT)...

Maybe you have something else trying to use esd at the same time?  Are you running
gaim with sounds on?  What about your panel, does it have sounds turned on?  When
I was running xmms with OSS and my panel had sounds through esd the entire panel
would freeze until a song change so it could play its sounds....
