Seems like there's something wrong with aRTS or libarts. This didn't
happen prior to upgrading from 6.06 to 6.10.
I also noted that the libarts-ausiofile and the kdemultimedia packages
weren't upgraded from 3.5.2 to 3.5.5 due to some dependencies not met.
apt-get complains about the lack of various "-dev" packages that
kdemultimedia and libarts-audiofile depend upon.
I tried to uninstall kdemultimedia (wich is only a metapackage, so no
problem) and libarts-audiofile to see if the aRTS-hanging problem went
away. The problem, unfortunately, persists, but now I can't reinstall
libarts-audiofile due to those dependency problems.
