Thanks, that worked.  It was Firefox.  I had watched a youtube video on
it, maybe that was grabbing the soundsystem.  I closed the youtube tab,
but it was still showing up on the lsof output.  Shutting down Firefox
fixed the problem.

I've been using Linux 12 years now, but that's te first time I've run
across the lsof command.  Thanks.

Jon S.
