Description of problem:
I'm playing a sound when I receive an email. But sometimes I'm
wondering about missing sound. Searching for the reason, I opened
gnome-volume-control and saw that the vol sliders are moved down
without any personal intervention.

This happens sometimes per day, while the rest of the GNOME desktop
is running without problems.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Play a wav file with the play cmd

Actual Results:  Can't hear anything from the speakers.

Expected Results:  Hearing sound.

I found out the reason: I'm using vmware, and if the virtual pc (in vmware) is
shut down, it (or vmware) mutes the speakers. This seems to be a vmware issue,
and not a gnome-media issue.
