 what happens with alsamixer and alsamixergui?   i suspect you have a
loop on your hands where pulseaudio has taken control without your
consent or knowledge of the ALSA devices.

 pulseaudio may be interfering, i've had to kill pavucontrol, and
pulseaudio, then *finally* the audio programs were able to wrestle
control of /dev/snd/* away from pulseaudio, and things went to normal.
restarted pavucontrol and it was fine.

 i suspect this is *nothing to do with* tde, and everything to do with
pulseaudio being a pile of shit.
