What? But the needed change is only about two lines, and PA doesn't
work at all without it. How can anyone get that wrong? An utter
absence of testing, even of the 'does it start' variety?

(For a GNOME-centric distro they've really messed up integration of this
GNOMEish component, haven't they? Not that PA is performing noticeably
badly for me in pure KDE... I actually had it stutter once, but the
machine was playing music over NFS *and* thrashing to death. With esd or
arts I think I'd have been lucky to get one second's sound per minute
under that sort of load.)
