The proposed fix has not been submitted to the Ubuntu package repository
as of Ubuntu 13.04. Scratch still will not work on 64 bit systems.

  pulse audio plugin seg fault on scratch in 64 bit 12.04

Status in “squeak-vm” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  To reproduce:

  1. Execute Scratch using current VM and pulse plugin (on Ubuntu 12.04, 64 bit system): 
  Executing: /usr/lib/squeak/4.4.7-2357/squeakvm -encoding UTF-8 -vm-display-x11 -xshm -plugins /usr/lib/scratch/plugins/:/usr/lib/squeak/4.4.7-2357/ -vm-sound-pulse /usr/share/scratch/Scratch.image 
  (There is no pulse plugin in /usr/lib/scratch/plugins in my installation package, so it must be using the one in /usr/lib/squeak/4.4.7-2357)

  2. Click "Sounds" tab, click play icon next to meow. That results in:

  Segmentation fault

  10273532 [] in SoundPlayer class>playLoop
  10262332 Semaphore>critical:
  10262240 SoundPlayer class>playLoop
  10273228 [] in SoundPlayer class>startPlayerProcessBufferSize:rate:stereo:
  10273320 [] in BlockContext>newProcess
  Aborted (core dumped)

  Note that the installation of the same package on 32 bit systems does
  not produce the error (playback and recording both work).
