KDE and continued sound issues.

Hello list,

I upgraded to KDE 3.2.1 about 3 months ago or so.  Ever since, sound 
occaisionally crashes with an error along the lines of:

Sound Error:

/dev/dsp busy.  Using /dev/null

I re-installed kde via portupgrade last week, and I don't get the error as 
often, but I do still get it.  Yesterday I used my sound all day, and it 
never crashed.  I rebooted into Windows, did what I had to do, came back to 
freebsd, and sound crashed right away.

I've tried grepping dsp in the output of lsof, but I get nothing.  I've looked 
through the entire output and didn't see anything that looked like it would 
have to do with locking my sound card.

1) How do I fix this so it stops crashing?


2) How can I freeup my sound device (/dev/dsp) so I can utilize sound without 
a reboot?

FYI, I'm using FreeBSD 4.9:
FreeBSD nomad 4.9-STABLE FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE #10: Thu Feb 19 23:08:11 CST 2004
