I don't know why the messages are garbled, but this is what I get
ALSA-related in /var/log/boot:
Sun Sep 20 22:42:23 2009: ^[[74G[ ok ]p ALSA... ^[[80G
Sun Sep 20 22:42:31 2009: ^[[33m*^[[39;49m Saved ALSA mixer settings
detected; aumix will not touch mixer.
The first message is probably "Setting up ALSA". In any case, the
issue described concerns only the levels of "Master". All other
levels, such as "Speaker" or "PCM" are properly restored. I start
suspecting that smth mutes "Master" after the correct levels are
loaded (perhaps Xfce's mixer?).
