gnome-volume-control doesn't restore remote PA audio sink after restore from hibernate/sleep

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-media

I have a remote host running PA in system mode connected to my stereo and my laptop connecting to it, as selected via the gnome-volume-control. However, when returning from hibernate or sleep, gnome-volume-control-applet doesn't try to restore the connection to the remote audio sink. Instead, it launches with a connection to the local PA and I have to go and launch g-v-c from the g-v-c-applet and restore the remote connection manually from the audio output tab. Ideally, g-v-c-applet would restore the connection itself, if the same host is spotted via Avahi upon returning from hiberante/sleep.

Looks like a Wishlist bug to me -- it doesn't appear as there is automatic enabling of audio devices when the reappear. In this aspect it would behave the same as a local device, too. In this aspect, I think I can confirm the bug.

Changed in gnome-media (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
