Yes, this is true. But again, the problem is with the existing code, not
PulseAudio. If we are going to simply give up whenever new code breaks
existing broken code, I don't know how we are going to meet the
challenge of keeping up with Windows and Mac OS X.

I still don't understand why you would think that OSS4 is going to be
able to deliver the same functionality as PulseAudio without the bug

But, as others have said, feel free to try it in your own distribution.
