Description Bill Nottingham 2007-11-02 11:40:05 EDT
1. have PA normally started
2. start rhythmbox playing (using gst-pulse)
3. pause RB
4. kill PA
5. restart PA
6. unpause RB

RB then hangs; needs to be killed and restarted.

Uh. How should this ever work? Why did you kill PA in the first place? If you
just want PA to give up the audio device, there's "pasuspender" which can do
this temporarily for you.

I mean, have you seen what happens if you kill "gnome-session"? Or
"dbus-daemon"? Most apps cannot deal with having the XSM or D-Bus restart
either. Sure, it would be nice if clients would automatically reconnect. But
come on. If you want to shoot yourself in the foot by killing PA, do you really
expect that gst-pulse will tape over this?

I don't think anyone is expecting it to work, but at least an error message
would be better than hanging the application (which is then going to be blamed
for the hang).

Also, the daemon might not be local, so network problems might also cause a
