volume settings don't persist after client reboot

On my Dell Latitude thin clients, the sound volume is at maximum for the first 
person to login after the client is booted, which is startling & annoying (and 
probably frightening for small children).  Lowering the volume will persist 
after the user logs out and logs in again (and perhaps even if a different user 
logs in?  Can't remember now).  But once the client is rebooted, it goes back to 
maximum volume no matter who logs in.  I would have thought the volume setting 
would be stored in some Gnome file local to the user, no?  Further, it would be 
nice if root could set a default volume level for all the clients.  Any ideas?
