Yep you have a sound card without a hardware mixer.   Killing pulseaudio and not inserting dmix results in exclusive access problem.  Basically you just did close to what the pasuspender script does.

You need a mixer of some form on a sound output or you have exclusive.

3 common options.  Hardware on the sound card.  Dmix from alsa and pulseaudio.
