*I* never said it was working fine with ALSA. In fact, there are a 
number of issues using ALSA without Pulse on my laptop that I've made 
the informed decision to use Pulse.

And, as I said in my previous updates, SD is the only issue I've had 
with Pulse during most of my use of it. OK, not entirely true, there 
were issues with audio on youtube a bit over a year ago, but aside from 
that, my only issue with Pulse is that SD has crashed four times during 
my typing of this while other audio continues along fine, and while 
that's certainly a bother, not having my audio come back after suspend 
is more so, as are the Pidgin and other crashes that I've seen reported 
on some AT mailing lists because people switched back to ALSA and ALSA 
has its warts too.

So, no, the accessible community distaste for Pulse isn't universal, and 
while I support user choice to enable or disable it based on whatever 
works best, it'd be nice to see as much support for my choice to use it 
as is given to other's choice *not* to.

Anyhow, not contributing further to this. My original post was curiosity 
about the status of this long-unresolved Pulse issue, not on whether or 
not I should be running it based on my own circumstances.
