Open() seems to be missing the initial call to aout_DeviceReport(). 
Then again, if the default value is not found in the device enumeration, 
there are no ways that the GUI will work properly; it cannot highlight 
an item that is not in the list.

Honestly, you should not use OSS. It is old, broken, unfixable and 
unmaintained (5 years without a release).
