Operating system: Ubuntu 18.04.2
Graphics card: Nvidia Titan X (Pascal)

Short description of error
When setting any sound preferences in the User Preferences, Blender ignores then and defaults to OpenAL Soft on the next startup.
Starting blender with -noaudio also exhibits the same behaviour, while starting with -setaudio (and a corresponding option) causes a hard crash when accessing the sound preferences.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Set system > sound user preferences to anything other than "OpenAL - Soft"
- Save User Preferences
- Restart Blender
- Sound is once again set to "OpenAL - Soft"
