Just to add some detail: I was using pulseaudio (mostly from Firefox and
Audacious), and could no longer get any sound out of the workstation.
After fiddling with it for a while, I tried to make it use a USB sound
"card" instead of the built-in one, but that just hung up my USB with a
"ehci_sync_hc: timed out" message, forcing me to reboot.  No keyboard
or mouse is kind of bothersome on a workstation.  ;)

I'm now running my sound sources configured to use JACK (I was already
running jackd to route MIDI between synths) with its OSS backend, which
works.  However, if I accidentally run something else that also wants to
use OSS directly, I have to reboot the workstation to get sound again.
