PulseAudio doesn't start



Hi List,

About 1/3 of the time I boot my F10 laptop, PA doesn't start. I open paman and find it isn't connected and I cannot connect. Besides the gazillion wakeup watermark messages, here's what's in the log:

Jan 28 08:26:57 interlagos pulseaudio[4080]: pid.c: Stale PID file, overwriting. Jan 28 21:42:18 interlagos pulseaudio[4080]: module-alsa-sink.c: Error opening PCM device front:0: Device or resource busy Jan 28 21:42:18 interlagos pulseaudio[4080]: sink-input.c: Assertion 'i->thread_info.rewrite_nbytes == 0' failed at pulsecore/sink-input.c:1150, function pa_sink_input_request_rewind(). Aborting.

The module-alsa-sink error is me trying to connect with the manager AFIAK. The first message at 08:26 was when I booted the box. I rebooted just now and all's well (still got the stale PID message though).

The only thing I can find that looks remotely related is this BZ which was closed ages ago:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=405351

Any clues? The knock on effect of PA not starting is that Pidgin hangs hard when it tries to make noise. Other colleagues of mine report this symptom as well...
