That's good to hear. (Great, even) And while I appreciate that it is not a PA bug and that its removal is not a permanent solution, I just don't think my parents would appreciate my little sister being able to hear flame-engulfed headcrab zombies screaming in pain in the meanwhile. ;-)

(I must also note that I've not been very happy with the soundcard on Windows either. The volume has to be set pathetically low (4-7%) for it to not blow my eardrums out....)
