This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker

So RH is going to ship an enterprise distribution with broken sound in KDE? Way to go folks… :-/
Thank you for your bug report. This issue was evaluated for inclusion
in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Unfortunately, we
are unable to address this request in the current release. Because we
are in the final stage of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 development, only
significant, release-blocking issues involving serious regressions and
data corruption can be considered.
If you believe this issue meets the release blocking criteria as
defined and communicated to you by your Red Hat Support representative,
please ask your representative to file this issue as a blocker for the
current release. Otherwise, ask that it be evaluated for inclusion in
the next minor release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for

Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support

it seems this is still broken by default - have been testing kde in el6.4, and there are issues with choppy/stuttering sound with any programs that use kde sound system (e.g. juk).
if it helps anyone, i found that building updated packages for:
and installing these seems to have got everything working correctly for me - no more issues with choppy sound.
process was roughly:
- download red hat .src.rpm files
- download newer version of gstreamer source packages
- update rpm .spec files
hopefully that may be of use to someone else who is having the same issue, and stumbles across this bug.
