KDE 2.2 - Kdelibs artsd seg fault

I did audiofile, but I still get segfaults.  XMMS doesn't use arts, and it 
works fine.  Perhaps the problem lies in what sound architecture we are 
using.  I am using ALSA 0.9.6 beta7.  KDE doesn't support greater than 0.5, 
so I think I need an OSS compatiblity workaround.  That appears to be a 
royal pain in the ass, and I have yet to sit down and attempt it.  Also, 
now that I did audiofile and have libxml2, I didn't compile kdesupport 
(hasn't been one since 2.1).  Maybe that has something to do with it.
