Because you have "auto_spawn=1" in esd.conf, and default esd.conf not.

esound's changelog:
2006-08-07  David Schleef  <ds at schleef.org>

        * esd.conf: Turn autospawning off by default.  Don't use
          autospawning.  It doesn't work, and it isn't possible to
          make it work.  esd should always be started from the session
