 No, I never did, but I'm not sure it's worth keeping open.  Since
 reporting this bug, my system was upgraded to CentOS 5.2, which has
 gstreamer-0.10 as part of the standard install.  pidgin was not installed
 by default and since I'm not the root user, I compiled it from source
 along with many of its supporting libraries - all installs are in a local
 directory, not in /usr.  ''This time, everything seems to be working OK''
 - I've set the preference to ALSA (since it appears to allow asynchronous
 playing, while ESD does not appear to) and sounds are coming through just

 The original bug may have been due to some misconfiguration in CentOS 4,
 or some conflict between the centrally-installed gstreamer-0.08 and my
 self-compiled gstreamer-0.10... that does not appear to be the case on my
 new system.

 So... although I have no clue why it didn't work before or how to have
 fixed it, it's working now under the new setup, so the issue is a non-
 issue for me, now.
