since using 10.04 I have a big problem with my usb headset (freetalk everyman)

1. Problem:
I cannot regulate the volume of the phones (output) anymore with gnome-volume-control. By default the volume is set to 100% which is way too loud. When I set it under 100% there is no sound at all. Values over 100% work.

2. Problem:
The X server is freezing iregulary when I connect the headset and disconnect it, Magic SysRq works.
I checked Xorg.0.log and found out that it recognizes the usb headset as keyboard:

(II) config/udev: Adding input device Generic FREETALK Everyman (/dev/input/event7)
(**) Generic FREETALK Everyman: Applying InputClass "evdev keyboard catchall"
(**) Generic FREETALK Everyman: always reports core events
(**) Generic FREETALK Everyman: Device: "/dev/input/event7"
(II) Generic FREETALK Everyman: Found keys
(II) Generic FREETALK Everyman: Configuring as keyboard
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Generic FREETALK Everyman" (type: KEYBOARD)
(**) Option "xkb_rules" "evdev"
(**) Option "xkb_model" "compaqeak8"
(**) Option "xkb_layout" "de,de"
(**) Option "xkb_variant" ",nodeadkeys"
(**) Option "xkb_options" "lv3:ralt_switch"

It works all fine under ubuntu 9.10.

I hope that someone can help me.
Thanks in advance.
