Indeed, there has been something weird with snd and sndplay for some

Ive only tested jack-enabled versions.  Since some time near spring
2007, neither recent self-built jack-enabled versions or disted
versions from planetccrma (tested with snd-utils rpms for fc6 or fc7
from june 8th and december 7th.)  function without jack running.

Trying to use any of them without jack makes errors which resemble the
one Funny Zen described.
