Hello.  I've been a regular Ubuntu user for the past few years now and
an occasional contributor.

I'd like to bring attention to the bug at

The volume control in Ubuntu is unusable for many people because using
it via the keyboard shortcuts, applet, or other mixer apps results in
very jerky and unreliable adjustment.  In previous versions of Ubuntu
this didn't happen.  For those to whom it does happen, it greatly
burdens daily use especially for those of us who use a lot of
applications with different default volumes and rely on the controls
to work properly to adjust them.

I hope that someone can offer me advise or assistance in this manner.
If you have the bug I ask you to reply with some system configuration
details like architecture and sound card.  If a developer could be so
kind as to look at the bug I would appreciate this.  Thank you very
