Description of problem:
I was having trouble with skype, so I tried running it like so:
artsdsp skype

This subsequently locked up my system.

The version of skype I'm running is  And it actually says it's built for Fedora Core 3, but seems to work ok, aside from sound being kinda messed up.

I haven't tried to reproduce the lockup yet, but I will when I get a chance.

I'm not able to reproduce this problem on my working machine and notebook.
Please reopen it again if you have a testcase, which causes this problem. Thanks

This may be similar to the following:

Sometimes artsd locks up, generally when a program using it crashes of locks up.
 When this happens, the panel locks up too, making KDE pretty hard to use. 
Artsshell won't start, so it provides no control or info, but if artsd is
terminated by "pkill -9 artsd", the panel recovers and something respawns artsd.

I can often make artsd lock up in this wasy by running realplay, which seems to
accept input infrequently (maybe about every 10 seconds).  I start realplay and
then stop by clicking the "X" on the window decoration.  Pretty often, realplay
doesn't respond in time to prevent the "Window not responding" message from KDE.
 I then ask realplay to be terminated forcefully.  And sometimes, this locks up

Comment 3 Jonathan Ryshpan 2005-12-11 21:28:43 UTC
In my last comment, the first sentence should read:

Sometimes artsd locks up, generally when a program using it crashes OR
locks up.

Sorry for the typo.
