Is this because active audio sources other than /dev/dsp writers are
suddenly in and out of the mix? If there's nothing on the inputs, it

initialize all the levels to zero unless told otherwise. This would
doubtless annoy the average user, but is more or less equivalent to not
forwarding packets by default.
