Bug Description

Binary package hint: pavucontrol

In "Output devices" tab there are a button "Lock channels together". It have pressed down as default.
And I can unpress it and change each channel manually.
But if I close pavucontrol window (with "Lock channels together" pressed down) and open again, I see this button as pressed! And any try to change volume per channel goes to reset all channels to the equal values.
And all time that I spent to set the volume of each speaker (use 5.1 systems) I need to spend again!

I think that pavucontrol must save the "Lock channels together" state for each device after closing, and after reboot - too.

Yes, i tried to change the volume only from one slider of my 5.1 system but all the sliders follow even if I disable the option lock channels together

I agree with this: it is very irritating. Would be nice if pavucontrol would remember this setting. And the lock icon is also not as clear as could be and could use another icon to more clearly show the current state.
