I would expect this to be exactly what happens, but it doesn't.
Both in my case, and in what I instructed my friend to do, is re-enable
the PCI microphone, and then use g-v-c to switch between the USB
microphone and PCI microphone.
No difference. The program still records on the monitor source. To get
it to record off a real source, the actual recording stream for the
program had to be manually changed in pavucontrol.

Not only that, but whenever I boot up, there is a chance (dunno, maybe
50%?) that when I reboot my computer, and even if the USB microphone is
the only microphone that PA sees, it will still be unchecked in g-v-c,
and not set as a fallback device in pavucontrol.
You'd think that if there are no recording sources, and then when one
comes online, it'd be selected as the fallback automatically.
