mplayer screws up audio device access

I am running 4-Stable with up-to-date ports installed.
I'm puzzled by what mplayer does to my audio device
(I use mplayer-gtk-esound-0.92.0_4 compiled from ports).
When I run "gmplayer -vo x11", I can only play one movie with
sound. When I stop the movie (NOT exiting mplayer!) and start
another one, I get this dialog from mplayer:
"Could not open/initialize audio device -> no sound"
and, of course, there's no sound. This is quite a nuissance.
Any idea what is going wrong here?
