pulseaudio dies saying:
pulseaudio: pulsecore/mutex-posix.c:98: pa_mutex_unlock: Assertion 
`pthread_mutex_unlock(&m->mutex) == 0' failed.

This is svn://0pointer.de/pulseaudio/branches/lennart pulseaudio,
revision 1908 checked out on 2007-09-26.  I did strace and found that 
before failing to unlock the mutex it did very little, not even reading any 
configuration files.  (In my message of 2007-10-10 I show the activity 
between mapping the last library and starting the error message.)  

Any idea what to do next?
