I want to confirm this. I have this problem, too. It occurs after playing 
several songs in a row. Then You have to kill -9 xmms because it hangs in 
background (even after closing it). The device will be released then, too. 
There seems to be an ugly bug somewhere.

My configuration: FreeBSD-4.8, KDE-3.1 (running without arts), xmms-1.2.7_3, 
xmms-kde-3.0.0 (I tried both: packages and ports, same effect).
