I also just noticed that /dev/mixer is also owned by root, and so kmix in KDE and alsamixer do not work either.

Oops. Sorry to have opened this bug report. I have found the problem, and it was my doing. I had modified my /etc/pam.d/kdm file to make use of pam_ssh. With the changes in PAM in FC5, the ordering in the /etc/pam.d/kdm file meant that pam_console was not getting executed. I've changed the order of the pam modules, and now everything works fine. I'll change the status of the bug to NOTABUG. Once again, apologies for opening this bug report.
