Default Volume keys don't work

A side effect that I just noticed is that the volume up/down controls
keys no longer seem to function at all.

I reset the keyboard shortcuts to use them, but even with the whole
volume control panel enabled, they don't do a thing.

What did I break? I don't remember seeing this one before....

Update: Just for the heck of it, I set the volume controls to use the
"skip track" back (|<<) and forward (>>|) keys instead. These work.
When I changed them back to the volume down and up keys, they failed.

Now I'm completely baffled - the keyboard shortcut applet recognizes
the volume control keys, but they don't work, but the mute key works,
and the track back and forward buttons function for the volume???

Anyone?

TIA.

Fire up xev and tell us what is displayed when you push these various keys.

Thanks - I forgot about that:

same_screen YES,
XKeysymToKeycode returns keycode: 158

But for the track skip keys:

FocusOut event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1f00001,
mode NotifyGrab, detail NotifyAncestor

FocusOut event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1f00001,

FocusIn event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1f00001,

KeymapNotify event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
keys: 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

FocusOut event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1f00001,

FocusOut event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1f00001,
mode NotifyUngrab, detail NotifyPointer

FocusIn event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1f00001,

KeymapNotify event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
keys: 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

So it is recognizing the volume up/downkeys but not responding to them
(i.e., when they are the key maps for volume up and down, they don't
adjust the volume).

I changed the shortcuts to use the volume keys, and they show this:

KeyPress event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1f00001,
root 0x1a5, subw 0x0, time 217987731, (110,163), root951,229),
state 0x10, keycode 174 (keysym 0x1008ff11, XF86AudioLowerVolume),
same_screen YES,
XKeysymToKeycode returns keycode: 165
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyRelease event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1f00001,
root 0x1a5, subw 0x0, time 217987964, (110,163), root951,229),
state 0x10, keycode 174 (keysym 0x1008ff11, XF86AudioLowerVolume),
same_screen YES,
XKeysymToKeycode returns keycode: 165
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyPress event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1f00001,
root 0x1a5, subw 0x0, time 217989723, (110,163), root951,229),
state 0x10, keycode 176 (keysym 0x1008ff13, XF86AudioRaiseVolume),
same_screen YES,
XKeysymToKeycode returns keycode: 158
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyRelease event, serial 29, synthetic NO, window 0x1f00001,
root 0x1a5, subw 0x0, time 217989951, (110,163), root951,229),
state 0x10, keycode 176 (keysym 0x1008ff13, XF86AudioRaiseVolume),
same_screen YES,
XKeysymToKeycode returns keycode: 158
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False

The differences between the two views is this:

2c2

---

I don't think this is significant, but I thought I'd include it anyway.

Thanks.
