Comment 21 for bug 16454

@Dave Gilbert

Volume 0 is the same as mute. If it is not now, then it should be. Clearly, gnome people understand this: if the volume is zero they show the muted icon.

That said, feel free to reopen bug 24090. You may also ask directly to GNOME people ( whether they think this is a bug in gnome or in alsa.
