I think it is local to your configuration and laptop because I don't
have that problem.

GnomeMeeting is compatible with NO sound server for the simple reason
that none of them are good enough in terms of latencies for Voice Over
IP. So adding an option like the one you are describing is not feasible.
The right fix is to not use artsd or esd at all. Also, artsd has an
option to automatically suspend when it is not used instead of keeping
the soundcard busy.

That's a new feature in CVS.

I have to disagree here. If you explicitely request to display video
images, it is normal that GnomeMeeting is displaying them. I think that
you should not use video preview at all, that is not required to have
video calls.
