That tempted me to believe that I can just upgrade pulseaudio and forget 
all about it.. As a matter of fact, I went for that approach. Time will 
tell if that was really a quick fix.

The truth is that the difference between the versions is that FC12 gives 
you 0.9.21-5, while FC14 gives 0.9.21-7. Pulseaudio itself switched to 
0.9.22 only a month ago more or less, so I suppose they take 
intermediate versions. Anyhow, I downloaded the RPMs intended for Fedora 
14 and upgraded with them.

By the way, my first attempt was to download the sources for 0.9.22, but 
./configure failed on some missing dependency. I suppose that only Red 
Hat University graduates compile from sources nowadays.

After killing the existing pulseaudio (and assuming that I'm now running 
the new one) I still have sound on my system. I'll update you later, 
once I can judge whether the glitches are gone or not.

And Shachar, thanks for your explanations. What really bugs me is that I 
have no idea what is going on under the hood, so when something goes 
wrong, it's just playing around. Maybe I'll take the "Introduction to 
advanced audio systems" course at the said university.
