From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
Mozilla loads the flash plugin, which tries to open /dev/dsp and when it can't,
the browser hangs until the mp3 player (mpg123) stops.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run mpg123 <mp3>
2. start mozilla, browse to a flash site ( works for me)


Actual Results:  Mozilla hangs until the mp3 stops playing

Expected Results:  Web page should continue to load to completion...  sharing
the sound device?

Additional info:

This is probably a flash bug...  strace shows mozilla doing an open on /dev/dsp
when the hang occurs, so its obviously a sound related problem.  I can't believe
I'm the only one experiencing this...

Get the flash 6 beta.  It's fixed there.  I can't fix this since it's a flash
problem, not a moz problem.
