This means someone else opened the alsa device.
Try (as root)

Looks like only me in there. Unless another user did something and then exited. Is that possible?

The plot thickens. PA *was* started today and it has since crashed. I didn't notice that it had crashed until Pidgin croaked. One possibility is that I have started up a KVM instance since this morning. Any link there, possibly?
