I have a feeling it's a problem with PulseAudio. I haven't seen the
exact symptoms you mention, but I have seen problems where I am
listening to some music in rhythmbox and a flash movie in Firefox has
no sound. IIRC, I had to close rhythmbox and firefox, then restart
firefox and open the flash movie again before I got sound. Don't think
I had to log out to get it working.

Of course, after watching the flash movie, I couldn't listen to
rhythmbox again until I shut down firefox and rhythmbox!

I'm running 8.04 by the way.

HTH. Sorry for the late reply.
