Intermittent audio errors at login

I wanted to check if anyone else is seeing this: I'm running Fedora
11(-to-be) with (as far as I know) the default pulseaudio
configuration. Sometimes when I log in -- I'd say over 50% of the time
but I'm not sure -- everything basically freezes (mouse moves, menus
work, but nothing starts) for over a minute. Then I get a dialogue box
titled "Removed Sound Devices" that says:

KDE detected that one or more internal sound devices were removed.

*Do you want KDE to permanently forget about these devices?*

This is the list of devices KDE thinks can be removed:
    - Output: PulseAudio Sound Server

(Sometimes the device is "Capture: Default" instead.)

Is this just me? I've realised I've been ignoring it for a while
because it only seems to happen on login so I forget about it after
that, but it probably does deserve some investigation...
