There is nothing we can do about proprietary programs that don't behave.

Chances are realplayer can't deal with a sound server, try running it through 
artsdsp (if you normally launch "realplayer", launch "artsdsp realplayer" 

Please let me know if that works (and ask real to fix it).

I am having the same problem, artsdsp realplay doesn't help.  I am looking on
the Real forum to see what's what.
