Bug Description

After starting xvd from a terminal it spits out this:

** (xfce4-volumed:23107): DEBUG: The wanted card could not be found, using the first one instead.

** (xfce4-volumed:23107): DEBUG: There is no track label stored in xfconf

** (xfce4-volumed:23107): DEBUG: The wanted track could not be found, using the first one instead.

** (xfce4-volumed:23107): DEBUG: Current track has no volume channels, defaulting volume to 0.

** (xfce4-volumed:23107): DEBUG: Xfconf volume step: 5

And is unable to control the volume. xfce4-mixer works fine though, so it cannot be a gstreamer problem.
