I find auditory icons useful, but often leave them disabled in order to free up my audio hardware.  Many audio programs seem to access the hardware by dumping the data streight to the device.  When using sound, auditory icons may chop off another sound, or vice versa.  I know there are workarounds, but I'm lazy.
