Thank you for reporting this bug to Ubuntu.

If it is pulseaudio crashing then it's likely that's already been reported via https://errors.ubuntu.com/

In that case, please try to obtain a backtrace following the instructions at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash and upload the backtrace (as an attachment) to the bug report.
