It looks as though this only fixes part of my problems.

The following results - run after a reboot and restore of the last KDE
session - tells the rest of the story:

a) run from Konsole:

$ play /usr/share/sounds/pop.wav
playing /usr/share/sounds/pop.wav

No Sound.

$ artsdsp play /usr/share/sounds/pop.wav
playing /usr/share/sounds/pop.wav


$ play /usr/share/sounds/pop.wav
playing /usr/share/sounds/pop.wav


b) in addition, initially I lost my sound in the restored Opera browser;
after getting sound to work in the Konsole, it also worked in a reloaded
Opera (without the artsdsp command).

Is this a peculiarity of my box or a KDE bug?
