test with totem

Description of problem:

I would expect to set the volume at a certain percentage and have each player play music at that volume.  In both cases, with totem and rhythmbox, pulseaudio will adjust the volume +12% just before playing the track, and re-adjust after the track finishes back to the original preset volume.  This holds true for multiple tracks in the same playlist.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[brent@osiris ~]$ rpm -qa | grep pulseaudio

How reproducible:

Open music content with totem or rhythmbox

Actual results:

Volume changes during playback, then resumes original setting when completed.

Expected results:

Playback uses volume setting and does not change it.

I'm seeing the exact same issue.

We should add that Totem is actually controlling the *system* volume instead of just its volume. How is this possible? Isn't PulseAudio designed so that malicious apps can't hijack audio settings?
