Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open a youtube video and let it play 2. run "fuser /dev/snd/*" and verify that firefox's pid is using the sound device 3. open a PDF file (so that it starts in evince or kpdf or any external app really) 4. re-run "fuser /dev/snd/*" and notice that the PDF viewer is now using the sound device as well
