Hi David,

I have also had ALSA woes as of late with gutsy updates on a Desktop
Intel Board. During the shutdown ALSA refuses to die and forces a hard
reset.  In my case I finally traced it down to having included
gutsy-proposed and gutsy-backports in my /etc/apt/sources.list

Unfortunately the only way I found out was to re-install without these
two and now things are fine again. I did try to nuke everything to do
with X and ALSA and then re-install ubuntu-desktop but still no joy.
:(  I then also tried a few apt-get/aptitude reinstalls of certain
things but all to no avail. Other problems I was having were wierd
things like the "Human" theme dissapearing in favour of Clearlooks and
the likes.

I originally had these two entries in my sources.list as it was an
upgrade from feisty. What does you /etc/apt/sources.list say?
