Java/OpenJDK problem with OSS/osspd/pulseaudio

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I've got problems with sound output of java programs, which usually try to hog /dev/dsp, using pulseaudio and openjdk 7.Some rare java apps' sound methods surprisingly do work. Others (which the majority of java programs seem to use) do not. In Sun Java I could make those work by using 'padsp', however this method apparently fails on Archlinux with both latest Oracle Java (formerly worked on Ubuntu w/ Sun Java 6) and with OpenJDK too.So I tried 'osspd' (package is called 'ossp') and it shows the root process "/usr/sbin/osspd --dsp-slave=/usr/sbin/os (HowTos)
