Description of problem:
volume applet thinks that zero volume is the same as mute. When the volume is changed to a level of zero, the mute indicator is shown on the applet and the mute checkbox is filled. However, you can not use the mute checkbox to un-mute the system. The only way to un-mute is to increase the volume level. This is not intuitive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Lower volume to zero
2. Notice that volume applet thinks it's muted
3. Attempt to un-mute via the mute checkbox.
Actual Results: Frustration
Expected Results: The applet should have never displayed that it was muted. I had changed the volume to zero, which is not the same as mute. In order to un-mute, the volume should be restored, but if I have it set to zero, what is the value to restore? zero? Then it will always show muted.
Note: I looked through the other gnome-media audio/volume related bugs and there are similar bugs, but I don't think this one is a duplicate.
Should this bug be upstreamed to bugzilla.gnome.org to fix?
Sorry, got click happy. Reopened.

REOPENED status has been deprecated. ASSIGNED with keyword of Reopened is preferred.
Doesn't look like something we should be fixing/changing the behaviour only for
FC/RHEL. Feel free to follow the upstream bug at:
