qtopia and 2008.x don't switch alsa state files on insertion of the 
headset. This leaves you with the stereoout.state which will give output 
in one ear of the headset only. You need to load headset.state instead:
	alsactl -f /usr/share/openmoko/scenarios/headset.state restore
You may have to switch states manually rather frequently, depending on 
how aware of the headset the various apps are. You may want to switch to 
gsmheadset.state during phone calls for instance.
