/dev audio files ownership not resetting

I have a strange random problem for a RHEL5.3 Desktop system. Ownership of audio files in /dev (audio, dsp, etc) are not reset to the current logged in user, but retain ownership of the previous user. Permissions are 600. Also, this problem seems to be inconsistent. I have checked /etc/security/console.perms.d/50-default.perms and these files are listed. These systems do not have local user accounts but use ldap.


Thanks for the help,
