I don't know more. I've already spent 1h on the problem,
I can't see what else I can do. And BTW, to go through the 
sluggish BZ every time is just too much work.

My point was the even Rb wasn't working even if it did work in
the past.

I can't reproduce it, it may be a Gstreamer error, I don't know.

No, it's not my fault. That is the only thing that is 100% clear.
I had working sound, I didn't touch anything, sound stopped working
out of the blue ==> NOT MY FAULT.

I had to drop to the command line and kill(1) one PA instance.

It's set to autoaudiosink. I've never touched this setting.
