login screen forgets audio settings

Bug Description

When sitting at the login screen, I have to mute the audio because otherwise when the machine boots I get the highly disruptive bongos. However, if I then log in and re-enable the audio in my session, when I log out, the audio is re-enabled on the login screen, and I'll get the bongos again if I reboot.

Shouldn't the login screen remember its audio settings separate from the audio settings of my session? Is there some other way to prevent the bongos on boot but enable audio when I'm logged in?

affects: lightdm (Ubuntu) → unity-greeter (Ubuntu)

storing and restoring the volume is something also should be doing, though that's not session specific or user specific, not sure how that works for desktop session or if our audio stack has support for "by user" sound level
