I have the same problem as you do, but in my case the ambient lights
sensor doesn't work either.
This happened after a switch from 2.6.15 to 2.6.16. I think the reasons
might be in the I2C module that has been changed.

In the 2.6.15 it was I2C_KEYWEST while in 2.6.16 it is named  I2C_POWERMAC.
Wrote an email to the author of the pbbuttons but had no reply. It would
be great if we can sort out the problem in this list.
