I don't see any installed package, which depends on
gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio. pulseaudio recommends the package. (aptitude
tells that totem and xfce4-mixer depend on gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio,
but I think that is an error.)

Please note that just changing the mixer does not make the additional
mixer tracks work. I guess only disabling pulseaudio sound system
entirely would make them work like they did in previous releases.
