alsa dies everytime i close xmms

coming from slackware, I am used to using alsa for sound. After I installed the sarge net rc-2 yesterday (nice, by the way!) I opened up xmms to play some .ogg files. So since I set the audio to alsa in prefrenced I got the "make sure your sound card blah blah..." message. No big deal, I ran alsaconf, alsamixer and alsactl store. Everything seemed fine until later that day when I reopened xmms again and had to go through the alsa setup all over again.
Im using the onboard sound of my a7n8x nforce2 board if that helps. I just want to know what I need to do to keep this from happening again.
thank you

are you using kde or gnome?

kde likes to store and reload it's own copies of your volumes settings for you.
