Could it be that Mumble does *not* use PulseAudio, but instead attempts
to use ALSA directly?

PulseAudio works best when all the applications on the system use it.
:-)  You can check with ‘pavucontrol’ the list of applications currently
doing audio with PulseAudio.

Note that applications that use PulseAudio, including ‘pavucontrol’,
automatically start the pulseaudio daemon if it’s not already running.
