If you have sounds enabled in GNOME, try turning them off.
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-10-28 06:39:52 EST
Turning sounds off avoids the problem. It is then of course not possible to play
music files.
Comment 5 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:40:05 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
