I recall reading the explanation somewhere on the KDE site on why artsd will hold a 
lock on the sound device, but as I recall the 
lock is like for 30 or 60 seconds...  Reading the explanation I seem to recall 
thinking it was a lame hack solution to the problem 
of dealing with multiple opens on older sound hardware that can't handle multiple 
opens.  I forget where this was but it was related 
to artsd.
