Ok, so far the apps that send sound out of the server are:

Sounds that come out on the thin client are:
-mouse over on mp3 file on desktop(mpg123)
-test button in sound preferences

I put the export line in the realplay script as suggested and found :
export ESPEAKER=''
in the output file so I think this maybe rules out possibility 2

Also I have not been able to get any to the top three to work again
from the command line, so Im not sure whats happening there - its
probably dependant on some sequence of events i had done in the lead
up to that testing that made them work...

I put in a bug report last night as Im pretty sure this is a wrinkle.
Ill add this extra info to the report to give a more complete picture

Good idea. Im ready to help on that when this is worked out.
