Bug#452210: gnome-control-center: gnome-settings-daemon ignores default mixer track when adjusting volume through multimedia keybindings

Package: gnome-control-center
Version: 1:2.18.1-1
Severity: normal

When adjusting volume through multimedia keys, gnome-settings-daemon
seems to use the first available ALSA device, ignoring the "Default
Mixer Tracks" setting in "Sound Preferences".

Everything was working fine until I decided to switch to PulseAudio.

With a default ALSA device configured in /etc/asound.conf (per perfect
setup: http://pulseaudio.org/wiki/PerfectSetup#ALSAApplications), the
volume actions (vol up, vol down and mute) go to PA (through !default
ALSA device) instead of directly to the actual ALSA device, as I
configured in "Sound Preferences".

As workaround I've disabled the !default ALSA device.
