So it is. Owned by root but world rw. Then why, if root can access it 
during the init phase, is it not active for me until I do an alsactl 
restore ?  Something in starting the x stuff as the usr after the login, 
is killing the sound UNTIL the user does a restore.  And its a right 
PIMA. Just for S & G, I just added an aplay command to be executed by 
me, immediately after a line in rc.local that does a theoretical 
restore, as me to play the front-center channel id file.  I'll see if 
that plays when I next reboot. Which is not eminent ATM.
