I would guess that this is also a default somewhere else, maybe
hardcoded, because I don't have it but do have the problem.

OK, nothing in /etc/modprobe.d (this was a clean minimal installation)
so I made a file, put in that line and rebooted.

All OK now, speaker-test and alsamixer are working, I'll get around to
loading my sound player software when I have more time. Thank you again.

I presume this is a minor bug, a USB card really should not be forced
not to be card 0 if there is no other candidate.
