[pulseaudio-discuss] Bug with Pulseaudio/VLC

There is a bug either with VLC or Pulseaudio on Gnome in Debian. I'm running

After installing pulseaudio, the pulseaudio daemon must be running or else
VLC crashes whenever an audio stream closes. So whenever a video/mp3
finishes, the stop button is pressed, the next/previous button is pressed
etcetera, VLC crashes if 'pulseaudio' is not running.

If the pulseaudio daemon is running, VLC does not crash.

VLC did not crash before pulseaudio was installed. Esound would have been
installed instead. VLC does not crash if Esound is installed, whether or not
'esd' is running.

Please let me know if you think that this bug is a problem with VLC, not
pulseaudio, or if you have questions.
