Did you remove the entry in the file or did you remove the file? If you 
didn't remove the file, that would be another option - or even better, 
move it to another place so you can put it back later. BTW: I don't have 
a file ~/.config/pulse/default.pa on any of my machines, so I think 
sound should work without it. But maybe there is another file in 
~/.config/pulse/ which creates the problem. On my machines there is only 
a file cookie from last April in that directory.

Well, then it looks like I guessed wrong ...
