Sound Balance often on the left instead of centered

  1. Often I notice that the sound is kind of thin. I open the System Prefs
    -> Sound, and again, the Balance slider is on the left, instead of the
    center position.

    I never slide it to the left intentionally. It must be a keyboard
    shortcut that does it, and I don't even notice it.

    A friend of mine had the same problem. On my powerbook, it happens,
    say, every two weeks.

    It's a bug in the OS. If you use the keyboard buttons to increase the
    sound, and while you use them something else is chewing up CPU, it
    increases the left channel and not the right channel.

    Or something like that. I've never been able to completely reproduce the
    bug but it happens to me fairly frequently.
