Bug Description

1) => lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 12.10
Release: 12.10

2) => apt-cache policy gnome-settings-daemon
  Installed: 3.4.2-0ubuntu15
  Candidate: 3.4.2-0ubuntu15
  Version table:
 *** 3.4.2-0ubuntu15 0
        500 http://free.nchc.org.tw/ubuntu/ quantal-proposed/main amd64 Packages

3) I think gnome-settings-daemon should skip or delete the pulse tmp files.

4) The gnome settings daemon got stuck and keyboard shortcuts didn't work, volumn applet stucked too.

=> sudo strace -p $(pidof gnome-settings-daemon)

    nanosleep({0, 10000000}, NULL) = 0
    readlink("/home/vecio/.pulse/597c3768236921d57286be880000000d-runtime", "/tmp/pulse-LJLJZtJLWpLE"..., 99) = 23
    lstat("/tmp/pulse-LJLJZtJLWpLE", 0x7fff3c09c510) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
    umask(077) = 02
    mkdir("/tmp/pulse-euJOZCPFqcfT", 0700) = 0
    umask(02) = 077
    symlink("/tmp/pulse-euJOZCPFqcfT", "/home/vecio/.pulse/597c3768236921d57286be880000000d-runtime.tmp") = -1 EEXIST (File exists)
    rmdir("/tmp/pulse-euJOZCPFqcfT") = 0

If I delete the ~/.pulse directory, the daemon work well.

thank you for your bug report, while g-s-d could probably handle the situation better the real issue is with pulseaudio itself, as you pointed it out it will affect other clients as well (e.g the indicator) and we should fix the real bug rather than workaround it

affects: gnome-settings-daemon (Ubuntu) → pulseaudio (Ubuntu)
