Weird! For me xpdf does not seem to use the /dev/snd. I opened a pdf file
using xpdf. After that
sudo lsof | grep snd | grep xpdf
returned nothing. It could be something specific to your configuration. What
is your sound card? Are you using ALSA or something else?
I am using Debian Etch, xpdf 3.0.1, ALSA for soundcard configuration.
