[nas] device or resource busy

I run a Debian Sid (=unstable) system with 2 sound applications: a Nas
application to create custom sounds, and mplayer with sound only.

I can run both applications simultaneously.

Yesterday Sid upgraded nas, libaudio2, and libaudio-dev from 1.9.2-7 to 1.9.2-8.

Since that upgrade I can only run 1 of my sound applications, if I run
the 2nd one I get:

[AO_ALSA] alsa-lib: pcm_dmix.c:1018:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
[AO_ALSA] Playback open error: Device or resource busy

I was wondering if anyone could shed light on this problem. Is it a
bug in the Debian version of the 3 Nas packages?
