There's an old problem between xfce4-mixer (panel plugin) and suspend.

Suspending requires to release all file handles from mixer devices, and 
the usual way to do it implies to kill xfce4-mixer (something like fuser 
-k /dev/snd/control*).

An idea to partially solve this problem would be to modify xfce4-mixer 
to make it close file handles between vc polls... another idea : fork 
the vc poller in a separate process and respawn it in case it dies..

Am I wrong ? do you know a more elegant solution ?
