This seems to be a problem with alsamixergui, so I would file a bug
against it. The problem is not seen when you use alsamixer (You have to
run alsamixer from console).
It also wouldn't hurt to file a bug against Alsa with details about your
sound hardware (lspci maybe?). You should not need to run alsamixer to
get sound working out of the box.. I know there are problematic systems
where that might not be the case, but those should still be identified
and fixed where possible.
