sound mixer cannot find audio devices after rebooting with USB headset


On Debian Lenny and running KDE, I am using an audio card listed as:
02:0c.0 Multimedia audio controller: Ensoniq 5880 AudioPCI (rev 02)

and it works fine.

However, if I plug in a headset to the USB port of the computer
(Microsoft LX-3000 in this case, though I don't think it matters) and
reboot the computer with the headset still plugged in, Debian fails to
detect my audio card. I have the sound mixer applet in the panel to
control the volume and stuff. But that applet does not see any audio
device at all. It keeps showing "Select Mixer", but upon clicking on it,
it shows no choices to select from.

If I reboot the computer after unplugging the USB headset, all is well

Basically, the sound system fscks up along with the sound mixed applet
if I start the computer with the USB headset still plugged in.

Am I missing something here? Or is there actually a problem and it is
not supposed to be like this? Should I file a bug?

I have kmix 4:3.5.9-2 installed on this updated Lenny machine.
