The .state files come from

I just followed the instructions here:
which are:

aptitude install alsa-base
tar -xf alsa_state_files-working.tar.gz -C /etc
alsactl -f /etc/alsa_state_files-working/stereoout.state restore
addgroup openmoko audio

(that last command doesn't seem to apply on debian)

Well, I don't know why it isn't switching between those alsa states, but
knowing that it is *supposed to* helps, perhaps...
