Let me also add, that when Pd is already running with ALSA (or Jack, for
that matter), there is no way for pulseaudio to interfere, as the sound
device is already occupied by Pd and not accessible for pulseaudio. I
would say at this point pulseaudio can be ruled out as a cause for
Julian Brooks' troubles.
