Before PA a sound problem didn't freeze the GUI (effectively bricking
the system for normal users). Now it can. In my case, a few months ago,
it was doing so because a new PA version could not parse a manual config
change advertised in Fedora's own "Glitch-free audio" feature page a
Lennart stated that all this (PA being able to pull the GUI down, PA not
being able to parse what was a correct config file a version before, PA
rpm performing an unsafe upgrade) was NOTABUG.
