This isn't a big surprise.  You got rid of the sound/system file which
holds all of these preferences.  Now what you need to do is copy back
the sound/system file and restart.  If the response is still good, then
copy back the Gnome file.  If the response is still good, the problem
was a stale session manager proxy file.  If response is bad, then you've
isolated the file.  Delete it, and recreate those settings manually.
