Oh, you must not have been around when esound was used in gnome.  esd
used to die all the time and drag down applications with it as it went.
The app would sit there waiting to ring it's bell (or whatever) and
since esd wasn't responding, it would just stop.

Of course, you might blame the application (or maybe gnome) for assuming
that the app couldn't go on until that little bell chime rang.
