Unmute via the panel plugin does not work, either. What does work, though,
is to open alsamixer and unmute all master and PCM manually. While mute
applies consistently to master and PCM, unmute only unmutes master.
I experience this on various different hardware, ever since I switched to
XFCE about three years ago. I just live with it. If I accidentally press
mute, I open alsamixer and unmute PCM.

Volume control via keyboard works for me (provided I have unmuted all
channels with alsamixer)
