Esd should not be being started at bootup, as it's a Gnome thing, but will 
probably be started when you login to Gnome. I can't login to Gnome on Etch 
for some reason. It's probably annoyed that I use KDE. Anyway I booted up 
Sarge, and logged into Gnome, there under "Applications/Desktop 
Preferences/Sound" there is the option to start the sound server. You've 
perhaps looked at this already, but if not, and the box is checked, uncheck 
the darned thing.
