Hi Kyle,

I think I have also been having the same problems with pulseaudio on 
Arch. Basically pulseaudio seems to
mute and zero the master channel on my sound card (its a VirtualBox 
machine) whenever it starts.

I asked for help on the pulseaudio mailinglist back in June [1], but 
nothing much came out of it.

I then gave up for a bit, but have been meaning to raise a bug on it.

So this weekend I did so [2,3].
