Is this the case even if you don't manually select one? Ie, the first time
it's used, it uses the "fallback" device. The second time, does it still go
to the "fallback", or does it go to the same device it "fell-back" to last

I'm hoping it's the former, in which case... what is the difference between
a fall-back device and a default-device?
