Are you having these problems with the latest 0.9.13 and do you have 
this problem in system mode or a per-user daemon?

Does pulse die and is auto-respawned when you stop your media playing?

What version of alsa are you using (make sure you use the very latest 
git snapshots of the driver and libs or the latest RC which should go 
gold sometime very soon).
