Volume resets after stop/start (PulseAudio network sink)
Observed on 3.10 on Ubuntu 18.04.2.Repro:
- Start a track. Track can either be a local file or a remote stream/file.
- Adjust the volume (ex: to 50%)
- Stop the track with the Stop button.
- Start the same track, or another track, by double-clicking the track.
The newly selected track starts, retaining the previously set volume.
The newly selected track starts, but the volume resets to 100%.

Which audio output plugin do you use? (menu File > Settings > Audio > Output Settings)
So normally, my setup involves sending audio over the network to another PC via a Pulse network sink. However, that PC recently exploded (rest in piece, 9900k) and while I'm waiting on a replacement, I'm using the PC that's running Audacious as my main machine. The bug doesn't occur when Pulse isn't dumping into a network sink.

Well, it is PulseAudio server that remembers stream/device volume levels and restores them on a per user/per application basis. Audacious doesn't need to save and restore the volume levels.
