I followed a suggestion of somebody on fedora-devel and deselected
"Enable software
sound mixing (ESD)" in the Sound preferences panel.  Logout then
worked fine.  Reselecting it and it crashed.

It is possible that not playing sound is the default.  In that case,
using root or deleting the configuration directories go back to the
default which happens to work.  Temporarily disabling the event sounds
until the bug is fixed is much better than deleting all your settings.
