Could you give some details here:
* what's the most recent date you tried using Pulseaudio?
* what were the problems you encountered during that most recent time?
* which soundcard(s)?
* what level of latency were you trying to achieve?
* which Ubuntu version?

I can say it functions on Debian Wheezy when using the ALSA api, though I haven't tested it very heavily.
