Bug Description

 affects ubuntu/indicator-sound

 affects indicator-sound

In natty and earlier, it was possible to navigate to the volume control widget in the sound menu using the keyboard, and change the volume using the arrow keys. This is no longer possible in Oneiric, likely due to the move to GTK3.

This bug is because I'm not getting the key events when the IDO is hightlighted in the indicator. Key press to the right or left and the IDO automatically pushes the selection up or down on the menu. IDO should not consume those events and give me a chance in the indicator to query if it's a left or right arrow key and act accordingly.

That is what I'm presuming, can't be certain. It worked fine before we move to GTK3 over a year ago.
