[AE] XBMC constantly hogging audio device

The issue was specific to ALSA - the other platform where we needed to release the device was the Windows WASAPI exclusive mode, and that platform is now fine.
Thanks for this statement.

Why not let the user configure it with the streamsilence setting? There are systems out there where starting and stopping ALSA devices does not cause any issues (including my HTPC Wink). In the short-term this setting might help you guys in releasing Frodo, as you can still offer suspend/resume support for ALSA sinks. In the long-term I guess this can be resolved in a clean and generic way.
