After scratching my head for several days and trying everything I could
think of (including querying this list), I found I had something called
PulseAudio-volume-control installed, a graphical tool to manage volume

aptitude install pavucontrol

Alas for the days of wheezy, when everything _worked_!!
Use alsamixer first, as a general rule. pavucontrol cannot override
