i didn't reboot yet.

I suspect it's the same underlying bug that doesn't display the mute picture 
properly or doesn't move the slider properly in some cases...

specifically, when muting, it mutes master plus some other stuff
in the mixer, then it unmutes only master. I have to unmute the other
stuff one by one to really unmute.... I don't understand what that other
stuff are though....

Repeat what i did. What hapens?
Otherwise i confirm, that initially  the behavior
was what the other person was describing
up volume, could go up one increment and that was it.
Volume control with the mouse was ok.

I think this is purely a kmix problem. The underlying drivers are ok i think.
For example, i controll amarok just fine with other hardware buttons.
