No I didn't Christian. But when I was awakened by the phone at 3:55 am by 
some AH that left no trace on the phone system, just let it ring and 
hung up 50 milliseconds before the answering machine kicked in. I came 
in here, and iceweasel was on screen and had apparently recovered.  With 
all my prefs and passwds intact.  I didn't launch it & the only other 
person in this house wouldn't know how!

Is this where we drag out that now ancient Sir Arther C. Clark quote 
about any sufficiently advanced technology is indestinguishable from 

Call me puzzled.

One other question, there is a command to make alsamixer save its current 
settings but I've not needed it in years, so I've forgotten it. I had to 
run the mixer and reenable master after I'd rebooted.

I'll see what the man page has to say.

Thanks Christian.
