I appreciate that you've done a lot of work on PA, so I don't want to
sound rude.  I think in these situations (where a syscall fails) it's
better to not play any sound instead of having applications become
unresponsive.

The worst problem is with metacity.  It somehow enquires with PA if it
should play a sound when switching workspaces.  Since this fails,
trying to switch workspaces triggers the entire GNOME environment to
hang.
