You know, you may be onto something. I fired up kwave and loaded up a track. I 
see 6 wave forms, one for each channel. Awesome. I press play and glorious 
music fills my room. 

So i fire up amarok and load up the same track.  HISSS! Horrible static fills 
my room and from the feel of it, a bit of blood fills my ears  :"/

So i press play again in kwave and am told that dmux is blocked.  I close down 
amaork and press play in kwave. It plays fine.

It seems to just be a "software is not ready problem.

But i don't get why it works sometimes in mplayer and sometimes it does not.
