I don't know what would be attaching to mixer before login.  For me the 
problem is predictable: suspending after I've opened a player reliably 
hangs kernel, and killing every user of /dev/dsp* /dev/mixer* before 
sleep reliably avoids the problem.  Maybe something is attaching on startup.

As I understand it, r358629 adds a mechanism that applications can use 
to "do the right thing" but does not fix the underlying kernel
