My most recent experience with PulseAudio came when I noticed

I tried half-a-dozen things, without noticeable change (except
for the things which led to no sound at all); eventually I
noticed that some PulseAudio packages had been installed,
apparently as recommendations or dependencies of other things. I
tried a few things to disable use of PulseAudio without removing
it, without affecting the problem; I then removed all *pulse*
packages I could, and the problem was gone.

Me too, and I don't even use a DE! One day sound just stopped
working. Removing all of the *pulse* packages I could got sound
working again. I didn't mess with anything either.

If there _suddenly_ appears a bad smell in your house and you find
the cause, do you a) Remove the cause? b) Waste time by trying to
find out why it smells?

I recommend reading up on what 'anecdotal evidence' is, and filling
the bug report on PA next time when you encounter a problem instead
of pilling up PA issues in debian-devel in order to bash systemd.

I'd like to apologize for having mentioned it in the first place. I
certainly didn't intend to spark a pulseaudio discussion on

I might be interested in engaging in the discussion which seems to have
started (there are at least two things I'd like to respond to already),
but this is almost certainly not the right place for it.
