Ok, I wasn't aware of this directory (I have it too, though). If you
have pulseaudio files there, those are provided by your distribution.
Upstream pulseaudio doesn't ship any pm scripts.

Can't the connection recreation be scripted? But anyway, if reloading
module-jackdbus-detect works ok for you, that's fine too. Just one
thing: does unloading module-jackdbus-detect cause the old jack sink and
source getting unloaded? I'd expect not, so don't you get duplicate jack
sinks and sources after reloading module-jackdbus-detect?
