If this has only just started happening since your update then it sounds 
like gstreamer is no longer defaulting to pulse as it's default output 
layer and is using esound instead.

Unless you are specifically using some legacy app that uses esound it 
should not be in use at all.

So I'd start by checking how your gstreamer chains are working and debug 
it from there.
