	Right; I tried catting /dev/sndstat awhile ago. Didn't see much
	beyong my cound card type.  Also, there is no /dev/sequencer.  
	So why Kmid would  be hunting for it is one I'll have to look
	thru the code to learn about.  It's probably trying to open the
	sequencer as a last resort.

	This is also why lsof fails.  

	Hm, no src. Kmid is build from the kde3 source.  

	Well, I'm building kplayer which seems to be a frontt end for
	mplayer.  Maybe give me some clues why things-KDE keep breaking.
