[SOLVED] Gnome 3 - Audio gets loud for a while after changing volume

I'm running gnome 3.4.2 (info from gnome-session --version), running pulse audio.

Every time I increase or decrease volume music gets really loud for a few milliseconds and then it gets back to be "quiet".

The only "hint" what to do with this I found was to turn off alert sound (already done), but it doesn't work. And this is really getting annoying.

I have now idea what info is relevant for solving this problem so please just ask and I add more.

BTW: I have a feeling that whole system is "quiet" (I'm running almost all the time at 90-95% of max volume).

Weird, VLC works just fine, but MPD and youtube (via chrome) is crazy.

Edit /etc/pulse/daemon.conf, uncomment and disable flat-volumes.

Do you have pulseaudio-alsa installed?

@bwat47: extra/pulseaudio-alsa 2-1 [installed]
@heftig: thanks, this worked (as it turns out I've already found this solution but instead of disabling it I had "yes" there)
