so what is different from console to gnome? What processes are running
that we're before? kill them one by one and see if you can figure it
out. Might be some kind of esd thing. do you have the
gstreamer0.10-esd package?

of course, you could also try going back to your previous
.gconf/... and then pick through your changes one by one til it
fails. Although you think you didn't change anything related to
gstreamer in it, you may inadvertently caused a problem. Maybe for
example, the presence of a gconf-tree.xml changes the behavior of
some program or service, changes the default settings perhaps.
