I've got 2 soundcards, Crystal Sound(0) and SB Live!(1).
I was really tired and made a silly mistake, typing mixer -f /dev/dsp1
instead of mixer1...
I was working as normal user, i'm in group wheel and have 660 on
/dev/dsp* and mixer*.
Surprisingly, soundcard made a 3-4 sec. long 'bzzzzz' and machine reboots.

Logs are clean, dmesg is clean, filesystems were unclean.

Latest Preview.

That's funny. :-)

Sincerely Yours,
Vladimir Mitiouchev
