As has been said before: This list rocks!
My problem is fixed.
Solution -- run:
as suggested by Tony Nelson and Gérard Milmeister.
Note to Tony: In my haste I overlooked James Walker's instruction "As
root run" in your response; I ran it as my non-root account and that
worked for me. It appears that it updated/created my:
I first tried furlan's (flp) thing: rm .gnome2/gnome-volume-control
That didn't work for me.
And Oliver, since the problem is now fixed do you still want output
from a mixer?
The rest of this note is the text of the responses, and
my original post is the last thing.

When that happened here I found that (from your home directory) if
1. rm .gnome2/gnome-volume-control
2. click on the volume control and it works again.
I have no indication WHY this changes things as IIRC the file that is (re)generated
appears to be identical to the one erased in bot permissions and content.
What I look forward to is continued immaturity followed by death.

The gnome mixer uses gstreamer. Probably you have made an update
of gstreamer. Run gst-register and try again.

Somewhere along the line my gnome-volume-control stopped working.
It *was* working in FC3 and I seldom mess with it unless I'm doing something
which requires the mixer -- like recording from an LP!
Which means I have no idea what/when it got broken. (Perhaps an
update? I've about given up using SElinux; seems like every update to
selinux-policy-targeted kills something and I have to turn it off!)
Sorry, got off on a tangent, there.
Using the speaker icon on my task bar is futile:
Attempting move the slider -- it just reverts to BOTTOM.
Attempting to R-Click->Open Volume Control gets an error box
Sorry, no mixer elements and/or devices found.
The sound works!
Furthermore, alsamixer works. aumix/xaumix work.
Somewhere along the line Gnome has lost the ability to "see" my sound
devices. Anybody else seen this or have any clues?
My built-in sound card Driver: snd-intel8x0
According to Hardware Browser:
nVidia Corporation nForce2 AC97 Controller (MCP)
AlsaMixer v1.0.6 (which sees *all* the goodies) says:
Card: NVidia nForce2
Chip: Realtek ALC650F
