I think that you will find that the sound card problem is a PAM issue.  The only solution that I 
have found was to change the PAM configuration for the sound card.  To do so, edit this line in 
your: /etc/security/console.perms" file to read like this:

<console>  0660 <sound>      0660 root.sound

and make any user that is allowed to use the sound card a member of the group: "sound".  This is 
not the ideal solution since the owner of the card is still changed (but the group is not).
