Comment 13 for bug 274577

I have this aswell on 8.10 Intrepid amd64, it has something to do with pulseaudio/gnome startup?, every other login to gnome i get this and apps cant play any sound at all, i have to either log in/out or kill pulseaudio.

mplayer -ao pulse test.avi
AO: [pulse] Failed to connect to server: Invalid argument

mplayer -ao alsa test.avi
[AO_ALSA] alsa-lib: pcm_pulse.c:629:(pulse_prepare) PulseAudio: Unable to create stream: Invalid argument
[AO_ALSA] Unable to set hw-parameters: Input/output error
Could not open/initialize audio device -> no sound.

when this occurs i dont have any sound in gstream apps either.
