Bug Description

The headphone jack on my laptop is broken, so I leave my USB headphones plugged in most of the time.
  When Banshee starts playing, the headphones are at 100% volume. (This is too loud even for me, and I LIKE loud.) When I reach for the volume control on the little speaker applet, it does no good. It seems to be controlling the volume of the built in speakers, rather than the default device which is on my ears. I must select "Sound Settings..." then wait for the dialog to open, the select the "OUTPUT" tab, then switch to the headphones, THEN I can relieve my ringing ears.
  After performing that ritual, the volume control works as expected.

The sound settings dialogue is gnome-volume-control which is part of the gnome-media package. I'm reassigning this bug to that instead.

I'm also opening a pulseaudio task because IIRC it should remember which sink to use by default.
