For clarity the bug itself is in sound-scripts, but the new problem was
exposed by a fix in module-init-tools on x86_64 that prevents the
snd-usb-audio module being loaded when the alsa sysvinit script has not
been run... This would have always been a problem on systemd+i586.

I'll look into tidying up the sound-scripts stuff shortly.

So pulseaudio should have been running fine, so please keep it enabled.
And yes, sometimes a reboot is required.

The problem is PA probably would have been showing a Dummy Output rather
than your real h/w

Please post the output of "systemd-loginctl" after booting with systemd
and logging in.
