First of all, would it be possible for you to configure your mail client
to use "normal" quoting? That is, prefix each quoted line with "> ". The
default Outlook quoting style makes it very hard to follow the
discussion when not using the "top-posting" style (and most technical
mailing lists, including this one, strongly discourage top-posting).

So, PulseAudio 3.0 is crashing. Do you have any details about the
crashes? A stack trace would be great.

Backporting the relevant fixes from 3.0 to 2.1 should be possible. I
don't know what the relevant fixes are, though. I wonder if this bug
still exists in current code, because I didn't spot any promising
commits after 2.1 with a quick look at the sink-input.c, format.c and
module-loopback.c history:
