Description Bryan Che 2007-06-11 14:47:49 EDT
Description of problem:

Enabling the sound server and sound events on my Thinkpad T60 causes my system
to hang.  If I have the login/logout sounds enabled, I can't even login to my
system--login just hangs.  If I disable the sound events, I have no problems.  I
am using the Alsa system.  If I switch to the oss system, my system becomes a
bit more stable but still hangs.

In either case, I am able to hear sounds when I enable the sound server--this
just causes my system to hang.

I disabled SE Linux, but the problem persists.

Once my system hangs, my account becomes totally unusable, and I have to delete
my .gconf directory in order to login again. 

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable sound server/events on a T60 using alsa
2. login
Actual results:

system hangs
Expected results:

login succeeds
