Description Braden McDaniel 2009-06-20 22:04:04 EDT
Description of problem:
After experiencing freezes of much of the GNOME UI and observing gnome-settings-daemon failing to start, I found several instances of this in /var/log/messages:

Jun 21 02:38:02 bolt pulseaudio[3345]: core-util.c: Failed to stat home directory /home/braden: No such file or directory
Jun 21 02:38:02 bolt pulseaudio[3345]: lock-autospawn.c: Cannot access autospawn lock.

/home/braden is an NFS mount using autofs.

After performing "yum erase pulseaudio", the aforementioned problems have gone away.

Your home directory seems not to be set up properly, since stat() fails on it with ENOENT. This is not a bug in PA.
