good to know i'm not alone. i guess, if the "redhat-config-soundcard"
you mentioned is the gui-tool under "system settings", we're talking
about the same program...;-)(i'm german).

have you tried to leftclick on the toolbar applet _after_ you ran the
test "remove from panel", and then leftclick on an empty space appr.
where the applet was, in result showing a menue where you chose "add to
menue" -> "multimedia -> "volume control"?
works in my case.

let's wait and see if this gets fixed.
