You were right, specifying correct default-sample-rate in daemon.conf  
helped. I can now play sounds with paplay. Alternate-sample-rate is not a  
valid settings for my version of pulse audio.

Unfortunately new issue appeared now.
After accessing pulseaudio deamon (with paplay for example) it shutdown by  
itself with some timeout saying:
I: [pulseaudio] core.c: We are idle, quitting...

The full log can be seen in the attachment.

I have also tried to run pulseaudio with --system parameter. It does not  
work for me with following error.
E: [pulseaudio] shm.c: mmap() failed: Cannot allocate memory
E: [pulseaudio] core.c: pa_mempool_new() failed.
E: [pulseaudio] main.c: pa_core_new() failed.

with best regards
