This happens even if I have manually set it otherwise. STEPS TO REPRODUCE: 1. Connect to network with an Apple TV. 2. PulseAudio picks up the Apple TV device and sets it as default. 3. Manually set the built-in audio card as default. 4. Disconnect from the audio network, and reconnect. 5. PulseAudio again sets the Apple TV device as default. EXPECTED BEHAVIOR: Step 2 is debatable, but step 5 definitely should not happen. This is on Kubuntu 17.04 with pulseaudio 1:10.0-1ubuntu2 and plasma-pa 4:5.9.5-0ubuntu0.1.
