Ok... then volume control programs like GNOME's mixer-applet and KDE's kmix
should use front also. I honestly couldn't care whether it's called 'Front'
or 'Master', as long as my volume mixer controls the right channel!
Is it an ALSA or GNOME+KDE bug that the mixers grab PCM (which shows up as
the first mixing channel, Front second) instead of Front?
