Package: alsa-utils
Version: 1.0.11-2
Severity: important

Hash: SHA1

The alsa-utils version that moved into Testing yesterday completely kills sound. 

Playing with alsamixer and doing simple audio tests like playing a CD via analog 
output or trying grstreamer-driven applications produces no sound. 

So, something in this alsa-utils release is obviously affecting the master volume, 
in a way that is not apparent via alsamixer, but what?
