The vumeter on the Input devices tab will show a nice vumeter even if
nothing is recording....
This means that if you have pavucontrol open and use a crappy
application (like Skype) to record sound via the device directly (as is
the only way with skype - playback is cool via pulse but recording sucks
big time), then it cannot open the device because pavucontrol has hogged it.
I think that pavucontrol should only display a vumeter for sources if a
real app has the source open too.
