Re: Bug#735202: speakup crashes debian

If that missing dependency is undocumented and also not an mandatory 
automatic install with another package that needs a fix or two.  If 
anyone can test this on a machine with an ensonicq (I think 1370) sound 
card if this bug can't be reproduced, pulseaudio is at least 
participating and may be doing more than that.  Intel sound cards and 
pulseaudio don't get along well and until I learned that, I couldn't 
figure out how pulseaudio routinely failed yet speakup came up working.  
The amd64k machine I have unfortunately has one of the intel junk cards.
