I've seen the same, about 1 in 5 boots; same messages in
/var/log/messages.  Get the following in ~/.xsession-errors:

process 2901: dbus_shutdown() called but connections were still live.
This probably means the application did not drop all its references to
bus connections.
  D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace


Trying to start pulseaudio manually says:
[tbl localhost ~]$ pulseaudio
E: pid.c: Daemon already running.
E: main.c: pa_pid_file_create() failed.
process 3489: dbus_shutdown() called but connections were still live.
This probably means the application did not drop all its references to
bus connections.
  D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace
Aborted
[tbl localhost ~]$

After figuring out to run with '-v' I get this working startup
(obviously, lock/pid file timed out):

[tbl localhost ~]$ pulseaudio -v
I: main.c: PolicyKit grants us acquire-high-priority privilige.
I: main.c: We're in the group 'pulse-rt', allowing real-time and
high-priority scheduling.
I: core-util.c: Successfully gained nice level -11.
W: pid.c: Stale PID file, overwriting.
W: main.c: setrlimit(RLIMIT_NICE, (31, 31)) failed: Operation not permitted
I: main.c: Page size is 4096 bytes

Something BZ'ed here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=426965

Not sure if this is the same.
