PCM volume jumps to maximum

Dear All,

openSUSE 11.2, KDE 4.4.4

If I use amarok to change the volume or receive a notification from kopete: the volume of the PCM channel jumps to maximum.

I don’t want this feature or bug because the sound quality gets very very bad if PCM is maxed out. Would love to keeps this around 90 %.

This issue is probably a known issue but I was unable to find correct keywords to google for.

Anyone else with the same issue?

Same problem here with openSuse 11.3 and KDE 4.5.0

But it does not happen all the time. I could solve it once by restarting
Kopete and Amarok.

Actually I have this for longer now. Is this maybe a feature or misconfiguration? :S

I still have this problem. I ask for help in the KDE forum:
Sound jumps to maximum • KDE Community Forums

No, I figured out that I can’t reproduce this problem with a new user. It seams like there are some bad configuration files. Can you test if you have this problem with a new user?
