[kde-freebsd] massive problems with sound

About a quarter of the time after rebooting, my Konsoles
remember how to beep (BELL.ogg, not the "system bell"l it
doesn't work). The rest of the time I have to mess with
kcontrol until I finally get the bell to sound. I check
"system notifications" and do a ps -ax grep for knotify and so
on. In the wee hours today I found that if I chose the Sound
screen and chose to have things Networked, that only then did
the KDE sound stuff get restarted. (It showed a histogram,
going quickly from 0 to 100.) Only then, when I used vi/nvi
or vim, did ESC sound the BELL.
Writing a window manger this complex is waaay over my head. But
writing a script of piece of C or C++ to reinitialize the sound
system shouldn't be very hand. So can any of your KDE sound
gurus point me at the script(s) or code to give me a head start?
Any other tips or advice would be very much welcomed too.
