 Build joyride 1583, q2d09: I have an etoys script making a short tick
 sound (w/o reverb) each second. Machine goes to sleep after 35 secs
 without user input. Touching the pad wakes it up, the script continues
 visibly, but no sound is heard. Switching away and back to Etoys restores
 the sound (presumably due to Etoys stopping and starting its sound player
 on deactivation via dbus).

 If instead of the short tick sound I use a longer sound that lasts more
 than a second, Etoys even freezes after wake up. Switching away and back
 makes it work again.

 I have also seen that occasionally even switching forth and back did not
 restore sound. In one case !MiniTamTam could restore sound, in another
 case aplay on the command line did. In other cases, !MiniTamTam ceased to
 produce sound, and I also saw aplay playing silently. So I assume this
 problem is not unique to etoys, though I did not test other activities
 extensively (and I only have an MP machine  for a few days so I did not
 see the problem earlier).
