At a loss where to look for the issue, with xbmc that I use as my music player, after a pulseaudio update from limbo a few weeks ago, every time a new song starts, volume jumps to 100%
This happened after the update, before that it was fine.
It is only xbmc that has this issue, all other sound apps work fine.
First noticed it on a sabayon6 install that I installed to test 6 when it was released ... older install but was fine until the recent pa in limbo update which I am sure is in main now.
I did a recent install of 7 on another partition a few days ago and exact same issue, sound is fine except for xbmc.
This machine is a quad boot for testing, two gentoo and two sabayon, I never mix entropy and portage.
Kicker is, I just installed pa on gentoo and works perfect on same machine, default settings and not modify anything.
One gentoo is portage 2.1, while the other is portage 2.2
I believe there is an issue on sabayon with pa or xbmc, I am comparing files between gentoo and sabayon, The difference I see is in /usr/lib
On sabayon is /usr/lib/alsa
gentoo is /usr/lib/alsa-lib
These both contain different files, what is in sabayon /usr/lib/alsa is not the same as is in gentoo /usr/lib/alsa-lib
Whole different set of files.... gentoo works and sabayon is broke.
Really looking for ideas to troubleshoot this further, but any ideas on this... not worthy of a bug report from me, I do not understand why sabayon names the files different. both gentoo are 64 bit while sabayon is a 32 on one and 64 on the other.
If you are using the daily ISO, please report issues here to keep confusion down in other forums. Questions or issues with Molecule also here

I using 100% Portage and PA is working fine. If you think the gentoo ebuild will work better than Sabayon one you can mask Sabayon one and umask Gentoo one. I have /usr/lib/alsa-lib too but I'm using media-libs/alsa-lib-184.108.40.206::gentoo when I start xbmc it raises PA's master volume but audio stays the same in xbmc even between sessions my use flags for xbmc are
