LTSP local audio / sound not working on Lubuntu

I have been testing LTSP on Lubuntu and Edubuntu with simple 2-PC setups.

I found today that local sound does not work right on the Lubuntu LTSP 
client.  On several client sessions, Audacious and Rhythmbox played 
MP3's over the speakers attached to the server.  On another session, 
Rhythmbox produced an error that is was not able to locate or open an 
output device, and Audacious simply did nothing.

I checked the client BIOS to make sure that sound was enabled.

On an Edubuntu client, local sound worked fine.

Is this a familiar problem to anyone?  Solution?
