This is exactly the problem I was having several months ago. I
"solved" it by changing the permissions on the audio device:
cj42289-a(.../python/linux); ls -lF /dev/dsp
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 14, 3 Sep 27 2000 /dev/dsp
cj42289-a(.../python/linux); ./python ../Lib/test/regrtest.py test_linuxaudiodevtest_linuxaudiodev
test test_linuxaudiodev skipped -- (13, 'Permission denied', '/dev/dsp')
1 test skipped: test_linuxaudiodev
As a side effect, the machine no longer makes that horrid screeching
