Description Sebastien Bacher 2012-06-05 15:16:35 UTC
The bug has been reported on

Using GNOME 3.4.2:
- open the effects tab of the sound panel
- set some level on the slider
- check that double clicking on an effect plays it
- mute the effects using either the slider or the mute button
- unmute by dragging the slider to the right
- double click on an effect, there is no sound

that only happens when unmutting the effects with the slider rather than with the toggle control

    sound: Make sure the event sound stream stays unmuted
    Apply mute changes to the stream straight away so that we don't get a
    race with gvc_mixer_event_role_push_volume().
    See for details.
