Volume control icon indicates speakers are muted, but they aren't

Bug Description

Gutsy (7.10) tribe 5

While dragging fast the pop-up slider to adjust volume, the icon continuously shifts between 'little waves' showing output volume and a white x on red background (clearlooks theme), which should indicate that the speakers are muted. If the slider is released at that moment, the icon meaning "mute" stays, even if the volume is set at more than 0.

It seems it depends very much form the speed at which the slider is dragged. If I drag it very fast, I can get it to always display 'mute', even if during the movement I never let it touch the bottom. If one drags it very slowly there are no problems. Still, the problem arises even with a moderate speed ( I regularly end up with the icon displaying 'mute' when it's not true)
