In that case, my symptoms are the same.  I wasn't aware there was a
/var/db/mixer0-state file, and when I checked it out, I had mixer settings
stored there, but these weren't being picked up when the mixer is
initialised during boot.

Is there anyone else out there experiencing this?  Surely it can't just be
the two of us.
