This isn't a problem at all per se.  It's a personal preference.  It
might be nice to have the mixer device selectable.  In that case, file a
bug with the GNOME people to see if they can add a configuration knob
for it.  In the meantime, you can edit your source code locally to use

If you want to design the config option, send me the patches, and I'll
add them to our tree while you're waiting for the GNOME people to commit
