Strange - I think pulseaudio is getting blamed for a lot of things that have 
nothing to do with it, or very little.  I have it on three systems, all with 
very different hardware, and for that matter, different distros/versions, and it 
has not been the cause of any problem whatsoever.  I think it is a red herring 
in many cases.
