(I mistakenly sent this just to Bill Schottstaedt instead of the list
the first time.  Sorry.)

When i try `snd --display sibeol:0' (sibeol is my hostname) as a
regular user i get:

  ALSA lib pcm_dsnoop.c:556:(snd_pcm_dsnoop_open) unable to
  create IPC shm instance
  (snd:5507): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: sibeol:0
  open pcm default for stream 1: Permission denied

and when i try as root i just get the

  (snd:5490): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: sibeol:0


I've tried locally from an xterm, from a tty session, from ssh
remotely and ssh from loopback.  Always the same.  Also tried
sibeol:0.0 and some various other randomness.

I'm thinking this is a config issue on my end, and i don't know
anything about X and display stuff; if anyone has any pointers for me
for what i need to read about i would be grateful.  Thanks.
