[K12OSN] gnome-settings-daemon and esd-sound

The two questions in the topic is not related. I think.
I am using icewm, and I see that gnome-settings-daemon is started. What
exactly does this do?
Also, when using esd for sound, what takes of care sending oss sound
The reason for asking is that I am testing a Skolelinux LTSP server
(Debian). I know this is off-topic, but please forgive me. I am trying
to port some K12LTSP spesific things over to the Skolelinux server. I
have also looked at Ubuntu and Edubuntu.
Now, when I set up esd as sound daemon, I get sound from xmms and
mplayer when I set esound as sound-system. Gcompris and Tuxmath reports
"no sound" and do not play anything. I suspect this is because they use
oss and it does not get redirected to esd.
When I choose nasd, I get everything playing, but after installing
libaudiooss. Is there a similar "glue" to make oss play through esd,
like libaudiooss does this for nas?
I know this is not K12LTSP spesific, but I am asking anyway since the
general Linux knowledge here is awesome.
