Not a soundcard guru, but in my little experience with 3 different soundcards it depends on the soundcard.

My SBLive is the only card that actually allowed multiple programs to use audio at the same time. The other 2 cards both gave me the error screen (all from XMMS checks, no other program check, so again, very little experience). So anyway, hope that helps you a little bit, even though it's not very much info at all, it may be somewhere to start looking.

Oh, and I don't know what "half duplex/full duplex" means, but I think that has something to do with it.
