Once you close Banshee and start it up again it sets itself to max volume. The other problem I'm having is that Banshee is EXTREMELY loud in comparison to pluseaudio. 4% on banshee is 34% on pulseaudio volume program. I've tried setting the volume in pavucontroler and I've also tried this:


Additional info:
* package version(s
Latest version 2.6.0-2 64 bit

* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
Turn on banshee and play something.

Same problem in a just installed 64 bits arch, banshee 2.6.1-1

Edit: I've notice that if the general volume is set to 0 then banshee volume remains null. Only if the general volume to something bigger than 0 then banshee increases it to 100%. Wish this information helps.

Oh, maybe it's important. I have gnome and lxde/openbox sessions, and banshee only blows up the audio in the gnome session; everything in fine in the lxde one. I've tested in different machines with the same results.
