Hi Klaus.

Just a thought. When booting up alsactrl restore is run, and restores the 
alsamixer settings to what they were when you last shutdown. Now when you 
login to KDE, Kmix can mess with these settings.

have a look in Kmix, Settings, configure Kmix, and uncheck the box "Restore 
volumes on login", if that is checked. I have found that to be a problem with 
restoring the sound settings correctly with many Fedora versions when using 

Just a thought.
