Really? Alsa1x + Xine gives me multi channel output (except it doesn't 
do LFE downmixing, but 5.1 -> 4.0 is fine.  LFE downmixing is why I 
switched to mplayer)

Maybe using older alsa is your problem, have you ever tried mplayer with 
Alsa1x and gotten the same no rear-speaker problem?

Can't think of anything other than Alsa, sorry.  Try mplayer with the 
oss output, maybe you'll have luck with Alsa's oss emulation.
