As I read this in the original post it says that the audio stops
playing when switching from X to a Linux console.  Or the reverse.
When they switch the audio stops playing.

Erm...  I think you have misunderstood what was being asked there.  Or
perhaps I have.  The question being discussed at this point is why
does the audio stop playing when using Contrl-Alt-F1 to switch to the
Linux console?

When I switch from X to the Linux console or from one console to
another or from the Linux console back to X the audio keeps playing.
But as I read the original poster it does not for them.  So the
question at this point is why would switching to a Linux console stop
audio from continuing to play from X or another VT?
