I had some issues with pulseaudio playing with other apps that I
regrettably didn't file (reinstalled with FC6 soon after and forgot
about it.)  I think esd releases the sound device after a period of
inactivity which allows other applications to use it whereas pulseaudio
doesn't.  Not sure though as I tried running padsp <PROGRAM> and some
other things with no change.

Regardless, we should evaluate how well pulseaudio plays with other
programs early in the cycle so we have a chance to find and fix any
little compatibility issues that crop up.
