Bug Description


  Description: Ubuntu 9.04
  Release: 9.04
  Toshiba A-300 Laptop


  I would expect to be able to change the sound level even if my mouse is currently over a menu. I can normally adjust the sound through the volume knob at the front of my laptop.

What happened:

 No sound level changes when mouse has activated a menu and I try turning the sound adjust knob on my laptop.

Confirmed, on Ubuntu 9.04, activating a menu like "Applications" makes it so that you can't alter the volume.

Same here, the bug actually goes even further- can't use any other key shortcuts as well when the sound menu is open.
