Volume shifts unexpectedly

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
Open music content with totem or rhythmbox
Volume changes during playback, then resumes original setting when completed.
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?
