OK, so as I'm sure you're already aware from reading the link I
previously gave you, you do not have proper PulseAudio integration here.
Something with your build is broken.

Your System Settings window should look like that shown in the
screenshots I attached to the link.

Line 73 is the most interesting

"PulseSupport(2): Enabled Breakdown: mEnabled: No, s_pulseActive Yes"

mEnabled is No.

This basically means that the backend you are using does not support

What Phonon Backend are you using? If you've not done so already, I'd
rebuild this backend against your new Phonon build. If you installed
your own build of phonon into e.g. /usr/local, you must ensure that the
system installed phonon backend is not being used.
