Don't know about your distribution, but on suse 10.2 I had exactly the same problem.
You may want to check if the user accounts that have no audio, are a member of the group "audio". If not, just add the users to this group. Changes are this solves your problem.

Open a terminal, change to root if not already logged in as root and type:
# gpasswd -a your_user_name audio
Hope this helps.
