this behavior is a problem because:

1) A large variety of sound cards is affected, as you can see from the links in my original posting.

2) the channels in question (for my soundcard, at least) are CAPTURE channels, not output channels. Why should kmix even have to touch them?

3) This behavior causes endless headaches for not-so-experienced users, and gives KDE a bad reputation (think of all the "KDE broke my sound!" postings on various newsgroups.)

In my case, I had to press the "advanced" button in kmix and then mute "IEC958 Capture." Sure, easy enough if you know what to do, but the solution didn't immediately come to my mind...
