[gst-devel] Rhythmbox+Pause+GstStaticPadTemplate & GstAudioClock

Setting the sink to NULL was broken in the early 0.8 releases, then it
was fixed, and Company readded it to rhythmbox. I don't really see the
point of waiting 5 secs to go to READY or NULL since people will
generally pause music for longer than that, so we probably can do it
immediatly. If setting the sink to NULL is considered wrong by the
GStreamer team, we probably can special case alsasink and osssink to
only do it for those two.
Anyway, the only thing I'm interested in is a good way of releasing the
sound device on pause. It works by setting the sink to NULL. If this is
wrong/if there are other ways, feel free to propose a better way to do it ;)
