I have this issue on my Sid box. Turns out that on boot-up, Timidity
takes over the sound device at a lower level that the rest of the
audio-aware parts of my system, which prevents sharing the device with
those parts.

When I disabled Timidity (too Timid for my tastes though I needed its ability to render MIDI files),  then my Sound worked fine.
