Paul,

I don't know just why volume levels change. And I am sorry for my
sarcastic post. Well. A little.  ;-)

Pulseaudio, a utility used to set different audio levels for different
sources, works. For me.

To 'remove' Pulseaudio from your Linux install because you are having a
minor problem with it is self-defeating. I mean Linux is supposed to be
better than Microsoft Windows right?

Good that you solved your problem.
