Bug description:
  Ubuntu 15.04 r90

  1. Install the "Maroon in Trouble" game.
  2. With headphones connected, start a new game.
  3. After a while, disconnect the headphones.

  What happens:
  2. There's a volume notification each time a sound plays.
  3. There are no more volume notifications.

  What should happen:
  2. There are no volume notifications, because neither the sound output nor the volume is changing.

  <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Sound#notification>: "When the primary sound
  output changes for any reason except an app request, or when the sound
  volume changes for any reason, a confirmation bubble should appear ...
  There should be no special notification when the active output role

  This could be a side-effect of bug 1418210, but probably not, since it
  is idempotent: the notifications keep happening even if you don't
  change the volume in the meantime.
