That looks like the solution!  :-)  

Unfortunately, when I click Ok, KDE wants to restart the Arts daemon, and 
then, tragically, it complains dat /dev/dsp is busy...  I think artsd just 
doesn't "free" the device when it is killed manually, and therefore it won't 
restart either.  But I'll try it again on my next reboot, I think this may 
solve the problem!
