I saw this on a student's laptop here at ccrma. I don't think we figured
out exactly why that was happening. 

You could cheat by telling qjackctl to open the third card (or whatever
is the number the rme lands on). At least for all Jack apps that should
work fine.

Alsamixer can be told to open other cards by the "-c" parameter.

Yeah, that should not make a difference, the new module utilities for
2.6.x look at /etc/modprobe.conf.

I don't know enough, you could of course boot with rescue mode, and
reinstall grub pointing to the right device (I guess).
