Summary0007417: Pulse Audio updates changed volume control behavior
DescriptionLatest Pulse Audio-related package upgrades probably caused the following:

1) Volume control no longer works with Bluetooth speakers (volume level set to 100% and wouldn't change with controls)
2) Volume control lag with built-in/AUX output

We're sorry but we don't have the manpower to deal with hardware support problems. Those problems need to be fixed in the upstream Linux kernel, or in Pulseaudio, or the Bluetooth stack, or wherever the problem is.

Maybe consider reporting the problem straight to PulseAudio upstream at, or ask on the, maybe other users might know a workaround.
