Sorry... :-)

I'm using xmms to play sounds and I couldn't hear LICQ sounds, but LICQ
uses play (the command line one) to play the sounds, so I think is the
same situation as xmms + system sounds.

Now I can hear boot because I told xmms to use another DSP, but what if
I have a third aplication playing sounds?????
