Now this is interesting. I did rm -fr ./config/pulse and then rebooted
the system to clear memory and played a webm file I have on vlc.
Afterwards no change to speech happened at all. So it is possible what
configure-pulse is writing is causing problems. This is a current
version of archlinux specifically talking arch with all software updated
on an x86_64 machine where all of this happened.
