This is *NOT* a bug :) Finally the alsa state file for gsmhandset got fixed in 
the om svn. And this is why it is now in latest SHR and paroli images.

The default volume is put on max, which is obviously to high. And because it 
is depending on personal taste and the location your in (think doing a phone 
call in the disco ;) we want to have a volume and a mic slider in the active 
call view.

Until that will happen, you have to adjust the state file. Open 
/usr/share/openmoko/scenarios/gsmhandset.state and adjust it. IIRC it is 
control.4 (Speaker Playback Volume)... setting it to 105 gets me nice 'normal'
