Hmm, well it works on Mandriva with 0.9.10 so I'm not sure why it's 
causing issues for you. I don't think I did anything in particular to 
fix a problem in this regard (there was an issue relating to it 
remembering the default device across reboots (as this is stored in 
gconf), but this shouldn't affect individual application-device maps as 
this is stored in a file in your home directory.

Make sure your user has the ability to write in your ~/.pulse folder and 
particularly the volume restore table file. Double check that this 
folder is not owned by root or something silly like that (ll -d 
~/.pulse; ll ~/.pulse)

And just to double check, you are running a per-user daemon right? Not a 
system wide one?
