kernel oops playing sound -- sound now wedged



I used gmplayer (from Christian Marillat's excellent archive) to play a
video file this morning.  Gmplayer froze, and I had to kill it.  Now *no*
sound will play, and this is in /var/log/messages:

And now, I can't unload the sound drivers.  They all report being busy.  I'm
going to have to reboot to get sound back, I guess.

I've never experienced a kernel oops on this system.  It's disturbing.

Should I report this as a bug in kernel-image-2.4.20-3-k7?  There are
currently no visible bugs against any of the 2.4.20 kernels that I could
find.  Or is it a bug in the sound modules?

And:  I sent essentially this message about 6 hours ago, and it was never
posted.  That's three messages sent to debian-user that just disappeared
into the ether, neither posted nor bounced.  That should never happen.  I
know lists.debian.org accepted them, because I'm running my own SMTP server. 
Is anyone else experiencing this?
