multimedia keys stop working when restarting i3 in-place #3729

[ X] Bug [ ] Feature Request [ ] Documentation Request [ ] Other (Please describe in detail)
I have the following keybindings for the volume keys on my keyboard:
bindsym XF86AudioLowerVolume exec pactl set-sink-volume @DEFAULT_SINK@ -5% bindsym XF86AudioRaiseVolume exec pactl set-sink-volume @DEFAULT_SINK@ +5%
Also the default keybinding for restarting i3 in-place:
bindsym $mod+Shift+r restart
After I restart i3 in-place by pressing mod+shift+r, the volume keys are not working anymore.
pactl set-sink-volume @DEFAULT_SINK@ +10%in a terminal still raises the volume as expected.
The volume keys should still work after restarting i3

In the second log file I can't see any trace of having pressed either of those bindings. Are you sure you pressed them there?
Also, you say other key bindings still work, right? Does this key binding keep working if instead of changing the volume you do something else? Just to rule out that it's the command failing.
