[pulseaudio-discuss] Strange problem with pulseaudio 0.5.11

I spoke too soon.
It was working for some time, but on one of subsequent restarts,
it stopped working again.
The messages were:
Jul 25 20:15:21 [pulseaudio] core-util.c: Successfully gained nice level -11.
Jul 25 20:15:21 [pulseaudio] ltdl-bind-now.c: Failed to find original
dlopen loader.
Jul 25 20:15:21 [pulseaudio] main.c: Found user 'pulse' (UID 107) and
group 'pulse' (GID 444).
Jul 25 20:15:21 [pulseaudio] main.c: Successfully dropped root privileges.
Jul 25 20:15:21 [pulseaudio] main.c: This is PulseAudio 0.9.11
Jul 25 20:15:21 [pulseaudio] main.c: Page size is 4096 bytes
Jul 25 20:15:21 [pulseaudio] main.c: Using runtime directory /var/run/pulse.
Jul 25 20:15:21 [pulseaudio] main.c: Running in system mode: yes
Jul 25 20:15:21 [pulseaudio] pid.c: Failed to write PID file.
Jul 25 20:15:21 [pulseaudio] main.c: pa_pid_file_create() failed.
Jul 25 20:15:21 [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon startup failed.

And I may have something to add on 'internet radio stream noisy when
module-suspend-on-idle is loaded' topic.
While I can't be sure it's related and can't really test it now (as I
went back to 0.5.10), I got a strange effect in audacious (using native
pulse output, I think). When I started playback, I got some terrible
noise, but the moment I changed the volume, the sound was OK again.

And is there any way for 0.5.11 to work with wine, cause in my setup,
it works with 0.5.10 (pulseaudio) and 1.1.2 (wine) (well, more or less,
I'm not sure about exact timing, but the sound is good enough),
but if I go to 0.5.11, wine goes into permanent XRUN recovery.
Yes, I know about wine/alsa problems (i.e. api abuse/lack of needed api)
but if there's a way for 0.5.10 to work, there may be a way for
0.5.11, too.
