I have a slightly annoying, but seemingly harmless problem with my alsa settings.  It seems when I boot, at the point where 'restoring sound driver settings' happens, quite a lot of hiss comes out of my audio out.  It stays at its amplitude until I launch pd, at which point it goes away (before I start audio).  I can also start xmms and the hiss goes away only when I play the first file, not when I launch the app.  Any clues anyone?  This isn't the normal hiss from the noisefloor of my cheap card, its quite loud.  I can hear it from the built in piezo speaker in my laptop from across the room.
