The LSM should not be affecting this in any way.
More likely, you're logging in differently and the applications are
starting with different values of $HOME in their environment. On most
distributions /root is the home directory of the superuser. You
really don't want to be using that for audio data.
It matters whether you log in as `root' or as yourself. You should
generally log in as `mknecht', and use `sudo' to run individual
commands requiring root privileges.
