I'm dealing with something similiar, but something is odd here, firstly it 
happens only on some cards, and not all the time either. 
And of course since /dev/sound is a DIRECTORY and /dev/dsp is meant to be a 
file... isn't THAT the problem ?
Shouldn't udev configs be modified so it's symlinked to /dev/sound/dsp 
instead ?
