Indeed.  One of the tricky things about alsa is that by default, it starts 
with everything muted.  So if someone's been running it with saved 
settings and it had been just working, but those settings get killed 
somehow, alsa will return to muted by default, and there's been more than 
one person fooled by that into thinking sound wasn't working at all.
