        Right; I tried catting /dev/sndstat awhile ago. Didn't see much
        beyong my cound card type.  Also, there is no /dev/sequencer.  
        So why Kmid would  be hunting for it is one I'll have to look
        thru the code to learn about.  It's probably trying to open the
        sequencer as a last resort.

        This is also why lsof fails.  

        Hm, no src. Kmid is build from the kde3 source.  

        Well, I'm building kplayer which seems to be a frontt end for
        mplayer.  Maybe give me some clues why things-KDE keep breaking.
