2. /tmp/.esd

Also, polypaudio creates /tmp/.esd, owned by the user that created it, but
it doesn't nicely namespace the directory by default. The next user that
tries to invoke polypaudio with esd compat gets a module failure.

from here: http://seth.intheinter.net/pipermail/polypaudio-discuss/2005-February/000038.html

So,  basically, only the first user gets polypaudio/ESD playing
nicely. Others can get sound, but they need to use Alsa or OSS.
