Hadn't noticed that the forward tag didn't work last time, sorry about

Okay, it's been three months and upstream hasn't touched my bug.  I'm
wondering if I can get some help here, or at least vague ideas about
what might be going wrong.

On this laptop, fn-F3 toggles mute; when mute is turned off, there's an
audible beep.  When repeatedly toggling "mute unmute mute unmute", I
noticed that this audible beep capability stops during the boot.  By
booting with init=/bin/bash and carefully going through things, I've
managed to narrow it down to when the /etc/init.d/udev script runs

If I reboot and load the modules which udevtrigger would load, that does
not cause the beeps to stop, but then running udevtrigger does stop
them.  I think something in udevtrigger somehow disables sound output.

Any ideas?  Could this be a Debian-specific problem?  What do I test
next?  Do I stick a bunch of printfs and sleep commands into the
udevtrigger source to pin things down further?

I've had no sound on this laptop for a year, and finally have some time
to put into this, but would rather not just flail about blindly...
