VIA82c686a sound problem

  Since my last kernel build (sources of 03/27, about 15:00 GMT-3), my
  -CURRENT box detects the soundcard OK, esd starts fine and mpg123
  "prentends" to be playing soundfiles correctly, only no sound will
  come out. Booting the previous kernel guarantees it's not hardware's
  fault, because then it'll work fine again. I see no suspicious
  boot-time, syslog or console messages for tracing where the problem
  is, either.  Has anyone else noticed this?
