Comment 26 for bug 271706

Same thing on intrepid on an hp pavilion dv9000, 2.6.24-21-generic 32bit.

On this machine, the volume is adjusted by sliding your finger on a little stripe. It's like a laptop mousepad, but 1D and above the keyboard (http://www.laptopblog.org/images/jgfjh.jpg). What I find is the gently sliding and releasing still works fine, but if I press harder with my finger, I'll get a repeated volume adjustment until the volume hits 0 or 100%. The workaround is to be very gentle with this controller.
