I did.

This is a good tip, thank you. I tested and I can see that something like 

lsof | grep dsp

shows sox/mplayer/realplay. Next time sound hangs, I'll try. Still 'ps
aux' didn't show sound related applications running yesterday... Anyway,
I'll try.

That's more difficult. Yesterday, as far as I remember, it happened the
first time I tried to see a movie in the day, so maybe something was left
hanging before the last X logout, or some plugin was launched during
browsing. I don't know.

Thanks again,
