I don't use Firefox in this particular machine, and don't run java applets
either. It could be that some plugin was launched by Mozilla/Galeon, and
something failed. Sometimes, when I have this sound problem, I exit the
Gnome session and login again, but nothing. I did not do that yesterday,
though. But following the suggestion by someone else, maybe lsof will be
handy next time it happens.
