I'm afraid none of the core devs use Ubuntu, so are not really on top of
what version you'd be using nor what custom software repositories (I
think they're called PPAs) you may be "subscribed" to, so you'll need to
give specific pulse versions you are using along with information about
any additional patches applied on top in the package.
Maintaining a pulse package is fairly involved and requires several
post-release patches to be applied. I track these patches for the 0.9.15
release in my 0.9.15-branch branch in my git (http://colin.guthr.ie/git)
which is what we ship in Mandriva and is the same list used by Fedora.

That's pretty bizarre. I've certainly not seen that level of instability
If it does crash tho', you'll need to ensure you have debugging symbols
installed and get a good backtrace.
Without a proper backtrace there is nothing we can do to debug, so this
is a very important step :)

Again, none of the core developers here run Ubuntu so these versions
don't really have any meaning... specific pulse versions and what
patches are applied is what matters :)

Hopefully I've given some info above that'll help you give us more
meaningful info so we can solve the ultimate problem :)
