It seems that if you access cmpci through the /dev/audio interface,
it resets the mixer settings to default values. By my understanding,
which matches other sound drivers, only the recording/playing parameters
should be reset, not the mixer settings.
Try using /dev/audio and wonder why the microphone keeps muting
itself. If you use /dev/sound, it works!
Unfortunately, it cannot be repeated using audiorecord. Probably because
it fiddles with the monitor gain, which probably progagates down into the
cmpci driver and fixes the mixer. I can supply code on demand.
