shell-fm doesn't open /dev/snd/timer
I have a problem using shell-fm and libao (it uses libao for playback).
If the file/dev/snd/timer is not opened by any process, shell-fm starts playing music without opening it. However if it's already opened by another process, it opens it.
The problem is that when shell-fm starts playing sounds without opening /dev/snd/timer, any other process can't play sounds. I can't reproduce this behavior using libao 1.0.
As default driver I'm using alsa.
