Unfortunately that was not the cause this time.

:(

I did see separate "line in" and "line out" symbols
on other plugs. The plug I was trying had a graphics of
a microphone on it, and SPDIF written next to it also.
(In any case, I did try putting earphone into
each plug, and none of it stopped the speaker)

I really appreciate the rapid response so far;
the user community of FreeBSD is truly awesome!
