Update -> no sound

This time I can get no sound of Firefox or Rhythmbox,
despite PA running in the background.
Somehow I now have 2 PA instances:
[dimi at dimi ~]$ ps aux | grep pulseaudio
gdm 2547 0.0 0.1 101032 4240 ? Ssl May09 0:00 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --start --log-target=syslog
dimi 2699 1.0 0.4 170960 17604 ? R<sl May09 43:42 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --start --log-target=syslog
dimi 30180 0.0 0.0 4208 732 pts/5 S+ 11:35 0:00 grep pulseaudio
I don't seem to get working sound for more than
2 days in a row. Folks, I don't do anything
I am asking again: is this normal rate of problems?
Filing a good bug report (after trying to diagnose
the problem) took me 1h+ last time, I just can't keep
doing that in the middle of my work day.
A few more notes:
- I said that PA doesn't restart if killed. I was wrong.
It does, except that Flash doesn't reconnect. However,
Rhythmbox does reconnect, and I tested that several times.
Now even it doesn't want to work
- I did an Update, but I didn't reboot or restart. However,
my gut is telling me this is not related to the update,
but rather with another PA failure. I got an error about
some "Stream too big" or somesuch.
- The PA volume control shows Firefox connected, but I
get no sound. However, I can't see Rhythmbox.
P.S. After killing the PA instance owned by me (dimi), I
got sound again out of Rhythmbox.
