Thanks for replying.

- "...it sounds like your pulseaudio died, and it's just a coincidence that you
upgraded gst-plugins-base around the same time."

This is a clean install of Karmic Koala. Sorf of...

I can't tell you if that is a coincidence or not. Because, the very first thing
I did, after the installation completed, was to update & dist-upgrade.

I'm not sure, but I would say that some gstreamer packages were updated.

I enabled the SB Live! output after the update take place and reboot.

The one thing I'd remember is that when I've first check the SB Live! output my
Z-5500 went from "No Digital Output" to "Stereo X2" and when I've tried to play
a .mkv (after the proper gstreamer plugins downloading take place) this bug did
happen for the first time. 

- "Does it work after a reboot?"

No, it doesn't. 

The only thing that works is VLC SPDIF passthrough. 

VLC doesn't work with anything besides *AC3/DD/DTS*

After I've tried to play, for instance, a .avi XviD/Mp3 file, even VLC loses
audio playback, being necessary to workaround it.

(after close all open programs)

$ iecset audio true

Then you can activate (uncheck & check) your digital output (SB Live!) with
alsa mixer or gnome.

Now you have audio playback using VLC (SPDIF) *AC3/DD/DTS* only

As you may already guessed this is very annoying.

I hope this will help to shed some light on this issue.
