Yes, this is a bug.

You can try to install the linux-backports-modules-alsa package and then see if the problem still exists after a reboot.

If that doesn't fix it, please run the following command, and follow the instructions:

ubuntu-bug alsa-base

This will collect info about your audio hardware & software configuration, ask some questions, and submit this to the bugtracker on Launchpad (if you don't have a Launchpad account yet, you will be asked to create one). Once you are on Launchpad, make sure you add a clear description of the problem. E.g. if it worked in earlier Ubuntu-versions, pleas tell which one(s).
