in this case, wouldn't the volume already be blasting in their ears, even 
before a reboot? and how often/likely is such a scenario?

and am i correct in understanding that the alternative is: the user has to 
reset the volumes after every boot if they aren't saved? if so, that would 
imply readjusting the settings all the time, versus just once in the (how 
likely?) case of an application somewhere misbehaving, correct?

(questions, questions =)
