Exactly, so it opens the device for 3 - 4 seconds and I want to play an audio 
file. My audio player fails to play the next file and errors out. So each time 
that happens, I have to restart playback.

Ever used NetBSD, where you have no kernel mixing, or OpenBSD without aucat? It 
happens, it's annoying.

Even worse (and I haven't looked if your patch does that): Wait for the audio 
device and play the sound. It happend to me already that after I quit mplayer 
which was playing a movie I got all the event sounds sequentially, so it was 
playing notification sounds for a few minutes after quitting mplayer…

Now you're starting to talk bullshit as GNU has exactly nothing to do with OSS. 
And it has even less to do with the sound systems on BSDs.

Can you please stop ignoring the problem just for the sake of having your patch 
applied? Either fix the problem (i.e. make it optional) or don't, but stop 
making up imaginary arguments like it's GNU's fault even though they have 
exactly 0 involvement with it.
