Hi Paul,

I'm not sure if I had exactly the same issue but it was similar.
Basically my sound was muted and zeroed as soon as pulseaudio started
and trying to change the volume in GNOME seemed to have no effect. I
_was_ trying to use the init.d alsa scripts, but PA was overriding

Anyhow here is the bug report I filed[1], if you want to know more. My
issues were mostly addressed with a change to the config files.
