Package: libasound2
Version: 1.0.11-6
Severity: critical

After upgrading to 1.0.11-6 everything having to do with sound started 
failing hard. E.g. alsamixer:

$ alsamixer
ALSA lib control.c:816:(snd_ctl_open_noupdate) Invalid CTL default

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or 

strace revealed the following:
0xaff1030c) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

A temporary fix is to create the above path and put a symlink to 
/usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf there. It worked for me at least...
