Description of problem:
mixer_applet2 does not save settings between panel restarts. The
master volume mutes upon login. Mixer channel preferences are forgotten.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a "Volume Control" applet to a panel.
2. Master volume is selected by default.
3. Right-click and choose preferences.
4. Select any channel except the master volume (e.g. rear volume).
5. Logout/Login or restart panel.
Actual Results: Panel starts up with mixer set to the master volume.
A split second after the mixer appears the master volume mutes.
Expected Results: mixer_applet2 should not change the volume by
itself. mixer_applet2 should remember the proper channel assignments.
This is probably related to ALSA.
