 Actually the issue is that with the Dec 15 (apt) release of sndlib,
sndplay tries to look to jack for several times until gives up and then
binds to the alsa api which is what I use. In this process it writes
several messages to standard output which is not annoying in a shell but
it might be a bit distracting inside xemacs after several sndplay
instances in clm.
