Seriously, just remove PulseAudio. It was the only way I could get sound
to work reliably in F-10, and after persevering for a while I think I'm
going to have to give up and do that in F-11 too. I often just get no
sound at all from xine, and when I do it's often skipping a huge amount.

I _would_ probably continue to persevere, but I want to update my
father's laptop to F-11, and there's no way I can give him a machine
with PulseAudio on it right now. It's just not ready for production use,
in my opinion. So I should make my machine match his -- and enjoy having
reliably functioning audio again.

Unfortunately, in F-11 it's slightly more complicated to remove PA than
it was in F-10. Now you have to cope with the fact that 'yum remove
pulseaudio' also wants to strip all Bluetooth support from the system.
Apparently you are _expected_ to drink the Kool-Aid...
