Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 490145
Sound plays while application volume is 0

Again, no idea if this is a g-m or pulse bug :/
First, make sure all output volumes are set to 100% (the global and the application sound level). Play a song in totem (also tested with banshee: same problem). Now open gnome-volume-control and reduce the global volume all the way down to 0%. The per-application volume will decrease as well. Both gnome-volume-control and totem will show sound as muted. Now, increase the global volume to 100% again. You will again hear sound, but totem's application sound volume is still set to 0% and totem also still shows the muted speaker.

Nearly any random playing with in-application sound volume and with the system one in dock, exposes the problem.
* app looks muted
* system volume in docs shows some random amount of dB
* I hear the sound
I noticed that after the file in Totem changed, the volume was finally muted.
bug 488532 won't be helping that. As well as the fact that Totem won't update its display if the volume is changed externally.
Do you still see that problem since the fixes hit gnome-media and Totem?
No, looking good now. Thanks!
