aRts has an ESD mode, which works 100% with Pulseaudio.  Speaking of that, 
note that xine works better through ESD mode than through Pulseaudio mode as 

I have Pulseaudio completely set up to use everything, so I know what has to 
be done to get it working (especially on KDE).  Just ask.

Oh, BTW, I'd suggest sticking SDL_AUDIODRIVER="esd" in /etc/profile as well ;)
