Bug Description

Ekiga 4.0.1 on two different fresh Ubuntu Studio 14.10 64 bit installs (both my laptop and desktop).

The DTMF tones do not work during a call, making it impossible to retreive my voice mails, navigate certain automated call systems and so on.

I've also noticed that on both machines it's Ekiga is extremely slow to dial out and sometimes it refuses to dial out altogether. Pure speculation but there seems to be a compatibility issue between pulse and Ekiga. Configuration of audio input and output is also a real chore regardless if I'm using an old style 3.5mm headset plug or usb headset. Sometimes, I can plug in and call right then. Other times, Ekiga has no idea which device I'm using and I have to spend half an hour reconfiguring.

Works fine on Windows 7 64 bit however. Weird.
