It seems like the Sound control panel in Windows Vista SP1 may have some
issues, too.

What I'm seeing is that when I click on the "Recording" tab, all of my
record devices are opened (and they stay open).  This doesn't happen on the
"Playback" tab.

This one I can definitely reproduce. You may remember that last week I complained that I couldn't replace my GFX APO even if I stopped the two audio services because the DLL was still open. Well, this issue is the reason why it was still open.

Once this happens, some of the audio formats also disappear
from each device's Advanced tab.  If I double-click one of the open devices
on the Recording page, change the audio format on the Advanced Tab, and
click "OK", the device closes.  Once I do this for all devices (which makes
sure all the record devices are closed), all my audio formats reappear.

I haven't seen the issue with the audio formats, but that's not something I would have noticed. I will look for this next time.
