[pulseaudio-discuss] Bogus default port?

Hi guys,

I'm using Arch's pulseaudio package, which is currently at upstream
commit 09e88de.

On my laptop I have speakers and headphones. However, pactl also
includes a third port "Analog Output"[0], which (according to
alsamixer) behaves the similarly to the headphones port.

The problem was that this was being selected as my default port, when
no headphones were plugged in. If I plugged in my headphones, I'd get
the headphones port, and unplugging them would get me the speakers
port (i.e., after plugging in my headphones ones everything is as it
should be).

I guess the behavior I would expect would be that there should be no
"Analog Output" port at all on my system.

Is this a known issue, or have I made a mistake in my configuration?
Any further information I could provide?
