I'm not sure that it does, though.  In KMix, with Pulse Audio selected, I 
see exactly one slider ("Master") on the Output tab and one slider 
("Capture") on the Input tab.

When I select "HDA Intel", I get 12 slieders on Output, 5 under Input and a 
tab called Switches that has a bunch of stuff.

What constitutes "when it works" with Pulse Audio?  I'm thinking that this 
isn't it.  :-)
