Were Intrepid updates the reason I lost my sound on the Intrepid partition?

In the past, Pulseaudio has been a pain. Maybe someone will pipe up and
relate how pulseaudio is behaving. With regards to xine, open up a movie
file and let it play. Hit the mute button and see if sound happens. I
had that happen for awhile where the mute worked backwards, then it went
away. No idea. I did fiddle with the xine settings, and turned off the
direct hardware mixing attribute which seemed to restore things. Ric
