Public bug reported:

Affects: esound libesd0 (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

When switching to esd (from alsa) in multimedia settings I get some annoying errors.
When I for example watch a dvd and then attemt to watch another one (using totem-xine), the 2nd attemt gives me a "The audio device is busy. Is another application using it?" error message. I cannot resolve this - until I restart. Afterwards it works again. So I'd have to restart the computer every time I want to watch a movie - besides when it gives me this error message in totem - I can't test the default output - esd in the multimedia settings anymore.
