Have you tried this:

I love just about all of Gnome, except for ESound.  ESound is the 
biggest piece of junk sound "server" I have ever used.  I wish it would 
go away.  Alsa can do sound mixing now OTB, so there is no need for it 
any more.  Or at the very least, ESound should be replaced across Gnome 
with something better like polypaudio.
