I'm now running the what-would-be pulseaudio 0.9.11 a.k.a glitch-free,
which I've packaged in my home:rodrigomoya:pulseaudio repository.

Any feedback appreciated, I will submit this to FACTORY in the next few
days (if my testing goes well).

The new packages didn't go down well here, here are the issues:

* Flash in firefox stopped playing, I rebuilt libflashsupport, still
it didnt come back
* In other application sound stops playing after a while, only thing
that come out of speaker is crackling sound

The output when running in shell:

#pulseaudio &

After few minutes pa dies with this message:

Let me know if you need any tests to be done.

does this happen only after running flash in firefox? that is, without
running flash, do you see this crash?

Just talked with Lennart about this:

(11:39:09 AM) rodrigo_: mezcalero: I've just packaged it, and seems
some people are having crashes when running flash
(11:39:20 AM) mezcalero: rodrigo_: it should, but i haven't tested it
(11:39:38 AM) mezcalero: rodrigo_: libflashsupport does not solve all
problems with flash
(11:39:52 AM) mezcalero: rodrigo_: the way flash destructs the
libflashsupport module is racy
(11:39:58 AM) mezcalero: rodrigo_: and impossible to fix from my side
(11:40:06 AM) mezcalero: rodrigo_: hence it might crash or freeze when
closing a window
(11:40:13 AM) mezcalero: rodrigo_: but otherwise it should be fine

Seems the flash 10 beta fixes all the issues raised by the pulseaudio
developers, so please make sure it's a flash issue (run all other audio
apps except flash-based), and we'll see at updating to the 10 beta to
fix the issue if it's indeed related.
