thanks for the report, Can you try to reproduce the same with Hardy? that's probably not a g-c-c issue could be a bad mapping of the keys comming from the kernel for example.

Changed in gnome-control-center:

importance: Undecided → Low

I think it is because when one of these menu are open, they take the focus. So you are unable to change the volume.

I find it hard to call it a "bug", but I guess it could be fixed...
