If I use gstreamer-properties and turn off esd, everything works, though I have
to admit that I'm not sure what this accomplishes---with esd removed, everything
works, regardless.

Or did you mean, kill rather than purge?

The backtrace I already replied with certainly makes it look like it's libalsa.
