Yeah I spotted you're orignial one on the list so will keep an eye on 
it. You should maybe ask some of the Ubuntu folks who deal with the live 
system. You can maybe ask TheMuso on #pulseaudio IRC as he may be able 
to help (he's the Ubuntu packager)

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful, but at least you're getting there.
