I created a new package containing these changes, but I'm a bit 
unhappy with the cron job that creates /tmp/.esd/socket.

For my first crack at it, this cron job will refuse to run 
unless "FLASH_SOUND_HACK=YES" is added to /etc/sysconfig/k12ltsp

The problem, or potential problem I should say, is that if
/tmp/.esd/socket exists then esd will refuse to run except
as the user who owns /tmp/.esd/socket.

I'm not really sure if that is a serious problem or not, 
and don't have time to test it much right now. So for now
it defaults to skipping this part...

For those who would like to help me test this out, you
can download the package from:
