At least I'm not aware of workarounds... or actually, if you remove or comment
out the "load-module module-suspend-on-idle" line in /etc/pulse/default.pa,
that might work (the alsa devices will be kept open all the time then). The
problem may still occur when Pulseaudio starts.

Sounds like an unrelated issue.
