[linux-audio-user] RME Multiface with ALSA 1.08

I just posted a follow up to this bug in bugtracker.  

The mixer now looks great (thanks Thomas!) with the exception that the
Analog out seems to deliver no audible signal despite showing levels
in the mixer.  I am posting this here on the user list in case other
users experience this behaviour and because the bug tracker displayed
my pasted error message incorrectly (see below).

Reloading the driver (via the alsasound service in my case) gives the
following error, perhaps related to the Analog out issue:

Restoring sound driver settings /usr/sbin/alsactl: set_control:930:
warning: name mismatch (Passthru/Line Out) for control #21
/usr/sbin/alsactl: set_control:930: warning: name mismatch (Line
