Likewise, flat volumes breaks in random and amusing new ways with every version, and I've never encountered any of the mythical hardware it actually works on without annoying pops and glitches and random bursts of excessively loud audio when an app starts or exits. Hell, I've even tried it on hardware with no hardware volume control at all and somehow it still managed to screw that up by trying to adjust the non-existent hardware volume control - so lowering the application volume level had no effect until suddenly it muted the output entirely. So far as I can tell, the entire feature relies on hardware behaving in ways that isn't part of any specification and cannot ever be relied on. Though at least that can be disabled if you edit the right obscure configuration file as root.
