it would be nice if theres something that would notify the user that
pulseaudio terminated (and maybe ask permission to restart it) ...
rather than silently quit and left the users wondering what happened
to their pc sound and started blaming Fedora doesnt work ...

( I think i should use the term stopped rather than crashed )

I couldnt find the cause of pulseaudio stopping yet .. pulseaudio
suddenly quits on random ..

the last time it terminated, pulseaudio gived out this error

[kagesenshi Hikari ~]$ while true;do pulseaudio ;echo "DIED";done
Soft CPU time limit exhausted, terminating.
E: module-volume-restore.c: failed to open file '(null)': No such file
or directory
