I own a Creative SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 (emuxki0) and 
a VIA VT82C686A (auvia0). Normally I use the SBLive to
play some music using XMMS. In some situations the 
driver seems to stop allowing write()'ing 
to it's device file (/dev/sound1) and in order to make 
it work properly again I just need to open() and read() 
from /dev/sound1 (using cat).
This is a little anoying.
Has anyone experienced this kind of problem ? What could
it be ?

Thanks in advance.
