CentOS doesn't use pulse.  Still using esd.  I reverted the systems to a
32-bit version (FF 3.5) and I am monitoring the system as users start FF
with this version.  When I had the 32-bit version of Flash 10 installed, it
complained about alsa, so I have also reverted Flash back to version 9.  The
system seems stable and responsive, but I can't check on sound remotely (via
a VPN) so that will have to wait till I get back to the school.
/tmp/.esd/socket does exist though and I have libflashsupport installed.

Thanks for all the help guys!  It is appreciated.
