Description Robert Story 2009-04-03 16:00:20 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #479761 +++

Description of problem:

From /var/log/messages:

Apr  3 10:45:16 g2 pulseaudio[29080]: protocol-native.c: Failed to push data into queue
Apr  3 10:45:16 g2 pulseaudio[29080]: asyncq.c: q overrun, queuing locally
[Both of the above messages were repeated, lots of times...]
Apr  3 10:45:16 g2 pulseaudio[29080]: asyncmsgq.c: Assertion 'pa_asyncq_push(a->asyncq, &i, TRUE) == 0' failed at pulsecore/asyncmsgq.c:164, function pa_asyncmsgq_send(). Aborting.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# egrep "(pulse|kernel)" /var/log/rpmpkgs

Unlike the OP, my machine doesn't lock up. I have 3 sound sources on my machine:
1) banshee, playing mp3s
2) pidgin
3) scripts that use aplay

banshee continues working, but i'll notices that pidgin sounds and scripts using aplay aren't playing sounds. ps shows that pulseaudio is not running. If I try to restart it:

Apr  3 14:25:09 g2 pulseaudio[7035]: pid.c: Stale PID file, overwriting.
