Are you running xterm on the local machine, setting up the locale
variables, then connecting to the remote machine via SSH then running
audacity? From looking at the audacity emerge details on my machine I
suspect strongly that audacity is GTK1 based so I think locales are
going to be the problem.
Connect to the remote machine and run an xterm so that it appears on
the local machine, then re-do the locale setup stuff and run audacity.
Also run the following commands on a local xterm and a remote xterm
(both before doing the locale setup stuff I've mentioned) and report
locale -k LC_COLLATE

You're not likely to have to reboot the NFS client machines, just
unmount the filesystems from the clients and then remount them, you
will however have to find out what programmes are using the mounted
filesystems and quit them first otherwise the unmount won't work. If
you are booting across the network then that's a different matter.
I use autofs to automatically mount and unmount NFS shares, with my
auto.master setup with the "timeout" keyword, e.g.;
/work /etc/autofs/auto.work --timeout=5
/personal /etc/autofs/auto.personal --timeout=5
This means that if there's no programme using the /work or /personal
heirarchy, the shares are unmounted automatically.

alsamixer works fine for me, is that what you're using? I just set up
the alsamixer settings then use alsactrl to save the settings and set
my distro to reload them on restart (but not to save them on
shutdown). Also I use the dockapp "wmix" when I'm in X.
Blast off and strike the evil Bydo empire!
