In an attempt to see if this problem disappeared in testing, upgraded this
computer to testing (trixie/sid).  The plasmoids still don't work and
KDE doesn't find the sound devices.  The plasmoid only has the dummy
device.  This is not a matter of the driver (snd_hda_inte).  Playing
audio files as root from a console works fine.

Anything else I could try to figure this out?  Thanks.
