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.
