Update:  Just for the heck of it, I set the volume controls to use the
"skip track" back (|<<) and forward (>>|) keys instead.  These work.
When I changed them back to the volume down and up keys, they failed.

Now I'm completely baffled - the keyboard shortcut applet recognizes
the volume control keys, but they don't work, but the mute key works,
and the track back and forward buttons function for the volume???
