I think I have run into the same problem in the past. I haven't had it
happen as of late (don't really know why), but I ended up determining
on my system that there is an esd process whenever the sound is
locked. I just kill that process and sound comes back. But I am not
using the latest release of Flash 9... I am using Flash 9.0 r60
(according to about:plugins). I know they came out with a new version
but I haven't taken the time to update.

Hope this helps
