Please note that the pulseaudio mailing list isn't the Debian bugtracking
system :)

Everyone i've seen using Debian with this problem were either running a too old
kernel or a too old udev (latest pulse packages have their depends bumped).
Judging from the discussion on this list, your udev is new enough, which leads
to the question which kernel are you running?

Fundamentally, there may be no basis for anything.
