probably a stupid reply, but: did you try ALT + tab? or "ps aux" in a console to see if the program is actually running still? is it on a different workspace?

you may have inadvertedly removed the window list from the panel (panels are a lot more customizable in linux than windows). to get it back you can right-click the panel and choose "add to panel", then choose "window list".

I am led to believe that this is a bug not in Fedora Core, but in ALSA, the sound system.

I have found some threads that could help:

nope, it's the distro's fault if that's your desired behavior.

most distros are set up this way, requiring you to manually save the default settings to be restored on boot. for your mixer settings to be saved and restored every reboot you'd need to make 'alsactl store' run on every shutdown.

it also may not be restoring your mixer settings on boot, in which case, 'alsactl restore' needs to be invoked at boot.

this is the intended behavior of the sound system, not a bug.
