When I use musicpd, sometimes I forget to pause/stop it before shutdown my computer. When FreeBSD boot the sound is maybe at a default value and was higher than my value I set in mixer so the sound was too loud. 

This is because actually the /etc/rc.d/mixer is started after musicpd, so to prevent this I made a little patch but, it works but I don't know if it's the best. See `How to fix'
