I tried "All Output Devices" and no luck. But I think the tunnel 
module may be crashing when I open pavucontrol. I did not check to 
see exactly what does and does not crash the tunnel. Since this is an 
old version of pulse, and it works ok in the newer versions, I did 
not think it was worth the time trying to pinpoint the problem.

Here is what I finally did to get it to work on my ubuntu 9.04 system:

Edit ~/.profile

And add:

export PULSE_SERVER=tcp:ubuntu-DGTM.gateway.2wire.net:4713

Reboot and the remote server is now the default sink.

Thank you for your help.
