Description of problem:
The system has the following sound card installed:
ESS Technology ES1968 Maestro 2
Every time the box starts up, kudzu pops up and:
1. Says that it detected the card was removed
2. Of course, if you say remove config, it will
say that it detected it
Needless to say, it gets quite annoying fast.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot the box
2. wait for kudzu to startup
Actual Results: I'm always asked about the soundcard, even though it
was configured on a previous boot.
Expected Results: Once configured, I shoudn't be asked to reconfigure
it on every boot.

In any event nothing I did from kudzu seemed to fix it. We can only
hope it was caused by a kudzu bug that is long gone :).
Not sure where to go for here. Closing as deferred; please reopne if
the second entry comes back.
