Sound Output Preference Reset After Hibernation

Bug Description

In Mint 10.0 (Julia) installed on a laptop with external speakers attached that are set as the preference, when roused from hibernation the Sound Output preference is consistently reset to the internal speakers. When the user resets the output sound preference to the external speakers Mute is set by default. The output sound preference should persist after hibernation and Mute should not be the default setting for the external speakers. It should be noted that the external speakers in use are USB external speakers.

This behavior is consistently reproduced when coming out of hibernation. Speaker output preference correctly persists when the machine is turned on and off.

I think I mis-stated the problem in the original. This behavior happens when returning from a suspended not hibernated state. Happens EVERY time without fail. Apparently I'm not the only one who has noticed this. See here:

This problem was incorrectly classified as invalid and clearly was not tested before reclassification. This problem persists, is easily recreated and is extremely annoying. This needs to be addressed.
