esd locks up xmms as user not root

when I run xmms from a terminal I can get it to work as root, but if I run it as myself it will lock up and the only constant I can find is that

esd does not show up as one of the processes when I run as root, but it does spawn itself as a process when I am just a user. If I kill the process xmms starts briefly then esd is spawned again and xmms locks up.

Can anyone think of a reason for this. I didn't see anything in esd.conf that would cause it. I set esd not to spawn in the conf file, but as user I couldn't get xmms to work at all when I did this.
