No sound from Left speaker after upgrading to kde 3.2.1

well i just decided to upgrade to 3.2.1 today, and when i goto play a video or song, I didn't get sound from my left speaker. Ok, kmixer must have somehow been fubared up so i goto check it out with settings and all, nothing. Everything is setup as it is. So i open up a cmd prompt and do an "alsactl restore" as root as a friend of mine recomended and it worked. Now my question is what is causing my alsa settings to be screwed up? The sound isn't messed up untill i start up KDE so i know it has something to do with it. Any ideas?

What sound card and driver are you using?

Same thing happens to my MIDI music volume.

My relevant specs:
KDE 3.2.1, Gentoo Linux 2004.0
SoundBlaster Live! (emu10k1 driver)
whatever ALSA version comes built-in the plain 2.6.5 kernel
