Mixer default values not restored

I'm running FreeBSD 7.0 RC1 with the following in my kernel configuration:
device          sound
device          snd_emu10kx
My soundcard is a Soundblaster Live!

In trying to make the rear-channel volume default to "100" I added the
following to my /boot/device.hints:
This method is suggested on page 164 (section 7.2.4) of the Handbook.

The problem is that these mixer levels do not apply:
$ mixer -f /dev/mixer1
Mixer vol      is currently set to  75:75
Mixer pcm      is currently set to  75:75
There is no problem however in manualy settig these values.

Any help is welcome. My machine can - may it be needed - be used as a testbase.
