Give Fedora 8 a try until a better solution presents itself.

Just disable the forced pulseaudio alsa config in /etc/alsa/alsa.conf

The ConsoleKit in Fedora 8 uses ACLs to allow multiple users switching
desktops to share audio which works well if you pull pulseaudio out
of the picture.

Though for remote audio, pulseaudio works very well, so keep it around
for those rare times you do a remote X session (and force pulse through
alsa in the kdm/gdm env scripts if it detects a remote session!).
