Oh, that's strange... I have both playback and capture in that list and specifically implemented that, too. I wonder if something strange made it into the 4.4 branch? *checks* no...

Function vc_get_control_list in line 478 in
http://svn.xfce.org/filedetails.php?repname=xfce4&path=%2Fxfce4-mixer%2Fbranches%2Fxfce_4_4%2Flib%2Fvc_alsa.c&rev=0&sc=0 doesn't filter anything, it just determines control type and adds it anyway in each case.
