No sound on SoaS2-200904091547, when running on Windows XP (Dell latitude D610). Log says:

This has been fixed in the mean time (ever since etoys 4.0.2247, August 2009).

Which version of etoys did you install now?

And can you check that the "pulseaudio-utils" package is installed? It includes the "padsp" program that emulates /dev/dsp.
