Send back the output of ps aux. Maybe there's a process that's doing
something with sound and blocking you. Are you using KDE? If so, did you
disable arts?

You might also look at the output of lsof and see what (if anything) if
holding onto sound resources. I don't know much about doing that, so I
cannot help a lot, but on my system

lsof | grep pcm       returns nothing, while

lsof | grep sound     returns hdspmixer and two evolution hooks.

Maybe you will see other things as a clue.

Sorry for not being able to help more.
