It never had the option to use 'default' card as long as I remember.
I'm sure it had (not that it was a reliable thing, as for you it already
didn't give that option). Even xfce4-mixer itself could choose between
both (just like alsamixer).
Yesterday I was messing with my Xfce settings when after deleting some
stuff I tried to reset the mixer applet to use the 'default' and it just
showed the internal card.
IDK if it's a gstreamer thing or whatever. I did remove some unused
gstreamer packages I had after upgrading from F17 to F18 but they were
just plugins, I think.
Anyway, I'm using pnmixer.
And recently the panel applet also seem to have dropped the option
start pavucontrol on click (or I'm blind)...
Settings>Settings Editor, browser to xfce4-panel and change the call for
xfce4-mixer for pavucontrol (or whatever you want).

More like a missing feature than bug, I think.
I'm not sure, because the author doesn't like pulseaudio. He said it
doesn't play well with gstreamer in the distro he uses (Debian?).
