Bug Description

When changing volume and either playing with role volume changes, or device connect/disconnect, the sync to accountservice can interfere with the volume level by restoring back the previous volume value set.

One example:
Setting volume (create_volume_action) - 0.180322
Setting volume: 0.180322
Setting volume internal (0.180322)
Setting volume for role /org/pulseaudio/stream_restore1/entry2 (0.180322 - 11817)
Sending volume changed signal (0.180322 - 11817)
Sending volume changed signal - active role (/org/pulseaudio/stream_restore1/entry3) changed (0.781906 - 51243)
Setting volume internal (0.180322)
Setting volume for role /org/pulseaudio/stream_restore1/entry3 (0.180322 - 11817)
Sending volume changed signal (0.180322 - 11817)

To reproduce on touch:
1) Without any active media stream, set volume (alert) to 10%
2) Open music-app and play a song
3) Change volume for the active stream (multimedia) to 90% and hit pause (you can do both from the indicator)
4) The volume will change to 10% (as you paused multimedia), and then move back to 90%, as a consequence of the accountservice sync from the first volume set
