Okay I've a little bit digged into the issue:
- 0.9.14 works well
- 0.9.15-test1 is affected by the above issue.
Tried disabling some modules and also flat-volumes in defaults.pa, it
didn't help at all.
Then I've done a bisect between those tags and the problem seems to be
introduced by the following commit:

move flat volume logic into the core. while doing so add
n_volume_steps field to sinks/sources
Hope this helps, thanks.
