This is actually a bug in qasmixer.
Up to now it could not handle multi event masks.
Mask 3 seems to be
SND_CTL_EVENT_MASK_VALUE & SND_CTL_EVENT_MASK_INFO ( 1 & 2 )
but qasmixer checks for
( mask == SND_CTL_EVENT_MASK_VALUE ) ||
( mask == SND_CTL_EVENT_MASK_INFO )
which fails as ( 3 == 1 ) || ( 3 == 2 ) == false;
That should be fixed now.
A new version should be around next week.
You could also try the development version in the sourceforge mercurial

IMO the order doesn't matter as long as both events are handled properly
and the displayed mixer state equals the system mixer state

If that triggers a SND_CTL_EVENT_MASK_INFO event it shouldn't be a
problem in the coming version 0.11.0.
