I have the same binaries running on two systems.  One crashes, one doesn't.  It is perhaps significant that the one which crashes has an emu10k sound driver, which is a multi-open driver (i.e. even if one process/thread opens /dev/dsp for writing, other processes can still open it for writing, and the resulting two or more streams will be mixed and played).  The system which does not crash is a Neomagic, single-open driver, only one process at a time can hold /dev/dsp open for writing.  Given the comments about multiple connects and disconnects, this might be relevant.
