Bug Description

I switched the main wine buildbot client from Ubuntu 10.04 to 11.10, and now I've seen tests fail several times,
preceded by the message
ALSA lib pcm_pulse.c:746:(pulse_prepare) PulseAudio: Unable to create stream: Connection terminated
This is the main source of spurious test failures for the wine buildbot at the moment.

$ lsb_release -rd

Seems I'm running into them roughly every day or two,
which makes this the main roadblock towards hitting
my one-week-between-spurious-failures goal.

Ideas (in order I might try them):
- install alsa-plugins from git
- install candidate packages from ubuntu (e.g. new gcc)
- disable pulseaudio
- downgrade from ubuntu-11.10

affects: ubuntu → wine (Ubuntu)

Is it actually a spurious failure or is something genuinely broken with pulse here?

It looks like Pulseaudio is really failing, which is causing spurious test failures in wine.
