There are several different issues being muddled in that UF post:
1) taavikko and gspat have the issue of inaudible sound on boot due
to alsa-utils's broken udev.script (fixed; see

2) macaholic has the issue of sound device race between non-Free
Flash and PulseAudio (proposed fix in discussion; see bug 314739)

3) iaskedalice09, the original poster, has not included enough
information to debug the symptoms.

Possibly relevant to the original poster's symptom, but there's no way
to tell without further information.

All three (a, b, c) addressed above.
