[Mageia-discuss] missing volume control

This has happened once in a while before, but considerably more often in 
the last few days.

I have Mageia set up to automatically log in my one and only ordinary 
user when I boot up. Lately, maybe 25% of the time, when I boot up the 
volume control is missing from the system tray. Logging out and back in 
(reboot not needed, but would probably work, too)restores it. I noticed 
today and yesterday that when this happens the "welcome" music is 
truncated to one or two notes. I didn't notice one way or the other 
before yesterday.

Anybody else see this?

I'm using a fully-updated 32-bit Mageia 1 with KDE and an AMD Sempron 
3100+ processor, Fujitsu D1711 (modified Asus K8V-MX) motherboard, 2GB 
RAM, IDE hard drives. Sound settings other than volume are wherever the 
installer put them last June. Speakers are plugged into the back panel, 
as this case doesn't have front panel audio ports.
