I had this problem as well. I fixed it by removing the `-terminate'
clause from the `spawn_options' line in /etc/esd.conf

This means that the esd client library will only need to try to start
esd once, avoiding the intermittent hangs when it tries to start it

(I tried to find a better way to fix this, but the esd code isn't
exactly crystal-clear. I'm not convinced that calling esd_open_sound ()
followed by esd_close () multiple times is the best solution, though I
don't know of a better one..)
