The correct command for suid root is
# chmod u+s /usr/bin/alsaplayer
With just +s the process will also be set gid root (group id) and it
looks like GTK+ is also checking if this is true or not.

$ ls -l alsaplayer
-rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 942823 Feb 19 03:41 alsaplayer
So you only have to do a chmod g-s on your binary to get it to work...
