Alright. So how should we fix that in the package?
(I don't know much about pulseaudio myself.)

I'm not even sure what this report is saying. "snd_mixer_find_selem failed" is an ALSA error; it shouldn't be printed if PulseAudio output is used.

Dear reporter, could you provide details as to how exactly your sound system is configured, and under which precise circumstances you get the error message?
