If using PulseAudio as sound daemon I would advice to install 
xfce4-volumed-pulse (it's in Gentoo portage at 
xfce-extra/xfce4-volumed-pulse) instead of xfce4-volumed which is based 
on ALSA if I remember right. Therefore is will pop-up each time a 
channel for ALSA is created in PulseAudio.

I use xfce4-volumed-pulse and it's quiet as long as I do not adjust 
volume level ;)
