My indicator-sound is not visible at startup if and only if I start muted.

If I start with sound enabled (i.e. unmuted) it is visible at startup. By increasing the sound with the hardware-keys, the indicator appears and stays visible even if I turn off the sound again.

Sound works flawlessly tough...

Even if this seems to be a minor but, it annoys me, thus any help appreciated!

I'm running 13.10

Try sudo dpkg-reconfigure indicator-sound –  the_Seppi Jan 24 '14 at 21:46
Already tried that. Even a complete reinstall did not help... –  wa4557 Jan 24 '14 at 22:14
