Same issue here, but the mute toggle does nothing. I have to toggle
the master in the gnome/kde volume control. My setup has multiple
backends and frontends with kubuntu/ubuntu gutsy.  The frontend starts
off fine, then for some unknown reason this annoyance starts
happening.  Sometimes restarting the frontend isn't enough for the
behavior to stop.

Based on observation it looks like the normal behavior is to toggle
the mute on and off while jumping forward or back, and for some reason
the second time stops working.

I think I have seen this behavior of both the kde and gnome frontends,
but less frequently on the kde.  That observation might just be
because I use the gnome setups to watch tv more.
