Arts might have open the /dev/dsp.

There is an option under kde menu to activate/deactivate the arts
locking of the device, thus allowing you to play using other audio

keep in mind that if you force a bip in Konsole while listening using
esd/direct access, the beep will restart arts and thus will stop the
playing of the esd/other stream.

You might want to use the xmms-(something_here) which clears the gap
between songs and produces a continuous output, thus not releasing the
dsp device at any time.
