I had similare problems with Kernel 2.6.3, what I did was recompile arts, but
that gave me the same problem, so I just disabled it in KDE and things worked
fine (I'm not that much into having the MSWin emualtion of sounds everywhere),
now with kernel 2.6.4 this seems to be gone.
The only option that is different in the two kernels is CONFIG_PREEMPT is
disselected in the later one.
