  Ubuntu 17.04 : Volume notification keeps popping up constantly

Status in pulseaudio package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I use ubuntu 17.04 with pulseaudio 1:10.0)lubuntu2
  I upgraded to ubuntu 17.04 three days ago and the installation went well, the 
bug appeared right afterwards. The volume notification pops out on its own and 
the slider keeps on moving up and down. It sometimes doesn't happen for an hour 
or two and then starts happening every 30 or 40 seconds. The only way to stop 
it is to click on the sound indicator and open the sound parameters. Then the 
slider stops and the notification frame ends up having a normal behavior, gets 
blurry and disappears after few seconds. The bug appears only on its own : it 
doesn't behave this way when I myself change the volume with the hotkeys or by 
  This bug is very similar to the bug #1585084 that would appear on ubuntu 
16.04 and was supposingly fixed release 
(, except 
that this is happening on ubuntu 17.04.

  I tried uninstalling pulseaudio and working only with alsa/qasmixer, and the 
bug stopped appearing (but qasmixer isn't as comfortable as the embedded 
pulseaudio indicator).
  I tried defining the attribute "autospawn" to "no" in the client.config and 
the daemon.config pulseaudio configuration files. The bug stopped appearing for 
a while and then came back. It seems more frequent when "autospawn" is set to 
"yes" though.
  I tried killing pulseaudio, including at the start of ubuntu, and it doesn't 
work out : pulseaudio keep on starting and the bug keeps on appearing.
