Ah it looks I am not the only one who really is getting sick of this! 
Since the introduction of Pulseaudio in Ubuntu you guys (sound / desktop 
related devs) got plenty of feedback from the community, but you are 
doing still the worst job in the Linux world, even while Debian provides 
you with a good example! The PA main developer himself curses Ubuntu 
(ok.. it has been a while ..) Argggg!!!
