So I've had a very similar problem - the [ and ] keys move the slider on
the OSD volume display, but the volume doesn't change.

I had the audio device set to ALSA:default, and the mixer device was set
to /dev/mixer. Someone said (in a throwaway remark, I think; but I noted
it) that the mixer should also be set to ALSA:default.

I have finally had a chance to try that, and it worked. If you haven't
tried this, it may work for you.
