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.
