Sound in multiple sessions

I'm not sure if this is a configuration problem or possibly just way Linux works but I'm running SuSe 9.3 and sound works perfectly on all of the user accounts when only one session is open. However, when I have multiple sessions open, only the first has sound.

Any suggestions?

I believe it's because the sound "controller" (as I refer to it and is probably ALSA) is "locking" the sound to the first session.

It's like when sometimes you get errors in Windows saying a device is currently being used.
