I just did the update to 20171007.

After the reboot, pulsaudio no longer recognizes the soundcard of my docking
station. I have a Lenovo T460p with one of the 'real' docking stations (i.e.,
not USB connected).

So far, when I placed the laptop to the dock, sound would switch to the card
in the dock and play via the there connected external speaker system.

I first thought it was the pulse update to 11.1 from 20170924, but I had
rebooted Oct 2, and AFAIR it had still worked with it.

When shutting down after the update I see a line

Oct 09 15:24:04 woodstock.pitnet pulseaudio[2233]: [pulseaudio]
module-x11-publish.c: PulseAudio information vanished from X11!

And with the boot if the updated system I see

Oct 09 15:40:10 woodstock.pitnet pulseaudio[4408]: [pulseaudio]
backend-ofono.c: Failed to register as a handsfree audio agent with ofono:
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.ofono was not provided
by any .service files

don't have too many old logs (limits) to properly check :(

Has anyone else seen similar issues with (one of) the latest update(s), or
suggestions how to narrow it down?
