I think it would make sense to save the intermediate volume as integer
millibels - that way there couldn't be any rounding errors, because no
rounding would happen.

The patch works, though, so I'm not against applying it. That would be
the easier way forward - from a quick glance at the code it seems that
changing the volume format will involve more than just changing a
variable type.
