Ah, that would explain things, then, thanks. For the last couple days
I've had the impression that my music isn't getting as loud as it used
to, and I was just writing it off to my cheap 99 cent headphones

But things DO coincide with a recent kernel upgrade. That must be the
smoking gun. 

That upgrade also incidentally broke my VMWare Workstation. Of course
that was expected. But it broke it in a way that couldn't be recovered
by re-running vmware-config.pl. I had to go find some new patches first
to get it compiled again. 

Oh, well.

Good to know that the kernel is muffing my sound; glad to have the info.
