You have got to be kidding me. I know it is supposed to help with sound issues, but Pulseaudio kills sound for me.
With Pulse-audio, there is no working combo for having both my mic and speakers work at the same time.
With Pulse-audio, there is no way to set the level on the mic without it re-setting it after a few seconds.
I appreciate the effort, but my god it is a bit of a pain to disable that bugger as well (ended up renaming the daemon binary) and set up libsdl1.2debian-all (cause ya gotta have sound in the games).
