I don't see how this helps.

a) My problem was _not_ that some individual applications did not  work.
My problem was "total loss of sound". For instance, KDE did not make
its 'KDE' sound when it started  up after I hit startx. I had to run
alsaconf to get sound started again. /etc/init.d/alsa stop then start
as root did not help...

b) It seems to have been a Kmix setting problem. As soon as I went into
the kmix setting as pointed out by the other respondent, and unchecked
'Restore volumes on login' which is some kind of kmix bug, (whatever it means
:)) I now   have full sound (insofar as I checked...).

c) I ended up deleting arts (and with it went kde-core). No effect so far.

I don't know about your reported bug and I don't think your issues
have hit me, for example I just tried xmms and it works fine on my system.
Thank you for responding though...
