#1005 Push to talk suddenly stops working


I've been using Mumble close to a year and today my push to talk key stops working. I've tried rebinding it to other keys and eventually it stops working. If I leave the setting window up and hit APPLY push to talk works... but that's not really something I want to be doing when I'm in the middle of a game.

    Mine started doing the same thing today. Yesterday it ran fine, I could talk to friends and other co-workers. But today my push to talk wont work. I went though the audio wizard several times, enough to get sick of the 'this is an example of speech' dialog. But nothing I do, even setting to default will fix it. Push to talk wont work, voice activate wont work, etc etc. I can't talk to anyone aside typing.

    That along with once mumble starts up my system sound starts saying no mic/headset/speakers are plugged in... yet I can hear everything just fine, at max volume.. although some aps lose all sound, but I can hear mumble.

    I haven't had that issue Taiine, my mic/headset works just fine while the push to talk is working.

    When the PTT key stops working, does it stay keyed if you were transmitting at the time? i found a mild fix for that, cuz i've been getting the same thing.

    Running mumble as admin stopped the program from getting stuck, but it disables the overlay. Which for me is a problem =/

    So i'm going to keep lookin, will post back here if i find something else.

    I've experienced this a few times under Ubuntu 12.04 / Mumble 1.2.3
