Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-media

gnome-volume-control-applet should ideally (see [1] and [2]) automatically show a microphone icon in notification area (see [3]) when you start an application that PulseAudio identify as consumer of input audio channel.

This is a feature that was implemented in gnome-media 2.26, but that could appear in Ubuntu 9.10 (due to the full "switch" to PulseAudio).

Unfortunately, no microphone icon appears in notification area starting, for instance, the Sound Recorder application. Same issue occurs in Lucid Lynx alpha 2 (in VirtualBox, to be honest).
