'Twas brillig, and Lennart Poettering at 06/01/10 13:18 did gyre and gimble:
>> I stumble into it almost every day — I have event sound enabled

>> Everytime I click a button having something played in background,
>> I get temporary loudness bump.

I still see this too, but not for the full duration of the louder sound,
just at the fringes - e.g. when it starts and when it ends.
We discussed the problem a while back Lennart and you reckoned it was
something that wasn't going to be solvable at the time.
It's noticeable with music volume set to e.g. 17% and event sounds set
to 100%. Testing just now it's much better than I remember it being in
the past, but still definitely there and quite obvious.
