I took the easy way out. I chmod 666'ed all of the devices listed as
<audio> devices in console.perms and now VNC users can play sounds. I'm
sure some nefarious hacker can now hack into my MP3 player and play
Satanic messages without my permission, but I'm willing to risk it...
Thanks for the info. I'll look for a more elegant solution, but this
works for now.
