Ok. Once I dealt with a slight PEBKAC issue[0], I have tested this and
confirm that I no longer experience the random jumpy audio, volume
control jumping all over the place (halfline: that BZ I filed yesterday
is definitely not a GNOME applets issue therefore! like I suspected) and
my system is happily playing Garbage (the band, not random whitenoise).

Tangetially, I'll note that pulseaudio failed to start properly, then
crashed, and when I started it manually, it now adds that it can't find
the PCM channel...though it still works. I'll upgrade pulseaudio, but I
think this is all unrelated.

Ship it!


[0] One of these days, I'll learn to try the simple fix of turning brain
on briefly, rather than extracting initrd images and assuming the world
has fallen apart every time. I love drama way too much ;-)
