Bug Description

For some reason, my audio was not working properly (like slowed down) so I killed pulseaudio and once it had been reloaded everything worked well again. However, at this point indicator-sound was not able anymore to adjust the volume (while the gnome panel was). The only way to get this working again was to kill indicator-sound-service.

1) killall pulseaudio

Expected behavior:
2) once pulseaudio is restarted the indicator can adjust the volume again

Actual behavior:
2) indicator-sound-service need to be restarted to reconnect to pulseaudio.

Cool, there's just a minor issue: the notification is shown also when scrolling over the indicator icon when the menu is opened...
