Ah well, just me again then... bad luck :-/

Huuu, I am not very confident with all this multimedia/audio/video stuff.
All I can say is that when I installed Colony #2, Gnome was freezing/locking,
and a developer (Martin Pitt ?) told me to install "libesd0" which would replace
"libesd-alsa0". So I did that. It fixed the problem with Gnome freezing, but at
first I had some problems playing sounds. So I had the (bad?) idea to open the
"Gstreamer-properties" applet in the Preferences menu, and played with the
"Audio default sink" setting until it worked. Now the sound works perfectly (but
sound preview in GDM GUI of course ;o), and the setting is on "ESD".  I made a
screenshot just in case I talk non-sense ;-)

Martin said that Breezy would be using Polyaudio when released, but that it was
still very buggy, so it was safer to install libesd0 instead.
