Knowing which audio devices are grabbed by which processes might shed
some light on the situation; I would be interested to see the output of
lsof +c0 $(find /dev/ -group audio)
both when flashplayer tries and fails to play sound and when other
plugins of iceweasel do so successfully.
Another test would be if killing the pulseaudio daemon makes the sound
devices accessible to flashplayer.
Also, which value of ICEWEASEL_DSP is set in /etc/iceweasel/iceweaselrc?
