I suspect neither are pulseaudio bugs! The first is just a problem with
your dbus or console-kit setup.

I think the latter could very easily be a due to old h/w like you say.

This is handled differently in newer PA versions by module-alsa-card,
that implements a probing mechanism to determine how the h/w can be used.
