Description of problem:
sndconfig no longer warns about DISPLAY being set, as an indication of the
binary being run in X. Running sndconfig in X is bad, especially if using
KDE, and sndconfig used to do this behavior.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run sndconfig in X
Actual Results: no warning of DISPLAY
Expected Results: Warning: DISPLAY is set. It is recommended that
sndconfig *not* be run from X Windows. Continue anyway?
sndconfig no longer does the evil nasty direct hardware frobbing that
was the reason for this warning.
