Description of problem:
Whenever I play a sound, it keeps repeating endlessly in an infinite
loop until I kill the application playing the sound. In cases where
esd is used, I must kill esd.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Play a sound

Actual Results:  The sound repeats endlessly

Expected Results:  The sound play just once

Additional info:

I'm using a VIA 8237 AC97 controller.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-11-15 00:43:20 EST
Does this only happen with alsa-using apps, or all apps?
Comment 2 Michael Shoup 2004-11-15 00:55:26 EST
Appears to work with all apps now that i've checked, including non-alsa.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-11-15 13:52:51 EST
So, you can't reproduce it now?
Comment 4 Michael Shoup 2004-11-15 14:10:19 EST
Let me correct myself here. It appears to happen when using programs
using esd. So this is an esd problem then. Programs that communicate
directly to Alsa do not show this behavior.

I seem to have the same problem.  Sound works fine for the GNOME CD
Player (and I assume all other CD audio) but in other applications
(i.e., GAIM, XMMS, Rhythmbox, etc.) the first second of the sound just
loops over and over again.  I'm using the same controller as well.
