aplay, vlc, Xfce launcher conflict

I have a weird problem since upgrading from SL 6.1 to
If I have VLC open and playing music, when starting the following line
from an icon in a panel 2 launcher, the line hangs at the aplay statement
sh -c "/usr/bin/aplay -q /home/linuxutil/KDE_Notify.wav;
If I press "stop" on VLC, I here the aplay ding, and the command
continues and completes as it should. Then I can restart my music.
Weird though: I can run the above from a command prompt and
it dings right on top of VLC (no hang) and the command completes
as it should.
