I recently had a similar problem in KDE. The way I tracked it down was to fstat|grep dsp in order to see what had the device file open. What prompted this was I had been running skype and, after being disconnected, I was unable to reconnect. It turned out that konqueror had grabbed the device when I played a media file and hadn't released it afterward.
