audio video out of sync when equalizer-sink used

When the equalizer sink is used (which works quite nicely by the way!) video players seem to be unable to synchronize audio and video properly.
I've tried totem, vlc, and mplayer and in each case the audio lags noticeably (~100 ms). I have the equalizer-sink set as the default sink: ie default.pa has: load-module module-equalizer-sink sink_name=equalized set-default-sink equalized
For each of those players, if the sink is set to the hardware, bypassing the equalizer, then the a-v sync seems perfect. I can understand why the audio latency would be greater with the equalizer module, but it seems that the movie players aren't getting the message for the default sink?
It's easy enough to manually set an audio delay in mplayer, but with flash content this seems like a bit more of a problem.
I'm using pulseaudio-1.0-r1 on gentoo.
