Killing the sound server

I was finishing watching another excellent episode of Category 5 TV when I did a normal Alt-F4 to kill Totem. That's when the sound system decided to continue running ala Max Headroom.

As root:

/etc/init.d/alsasound unload

and a later

/etc/init.d/alsasound reload

did the trick.

I use OpenSUSE and am unsure whether it will work on other distros.
