Ok look at it this way. You mention you have had problems with Sound
since FC3. Has this been the same hardware? If it has been, then I
would seriously look at the hardware. A lot of customer sound problems
I have dealt with ended up being bad speakers, bad cables to speakers,
bad power supplies to speakers, bad connectors on the back of sound
card, etc. Others were sound card drivers, a couple of cards that
needed new firmware, and a lot of "it says its an XYZ card" but it
turns out it is a badly implemented XYZ card.

You have also had problems before PulseAudio was involved... so laying
it at PulseAudio's steps is a bit strong. Did you try setting it up
without PulseAudio? Did it work fine then for the extended amount of
time you say (eg 24+hours)? If then, yes its a problem. If no, then we
need to look at what is really the problem.
