Subject: gnome-volume-control: cryptic device display
Date: Fri, 01 Oct 2010 11:20:10 +0200
Package: gnome-media
Version: 2.30.0-1
Severity: normal

i, when plugging a Philips+Mic USB cam, gnome-volume-control display a cryptic
name for it.
Instead of something like 'Philips Bla', it says: USB Device 0x0471:0x0310
(Alsa Mixer)

It seems gnome-volume-control is not using information from usbids (usbutils
packages), since Ids can be found:
