I think that will be due to the packaging bug I just fixed in Debian. I would
expect the bug fix to find its way to the corresponding Ubuntu package as

I'm using a USB headset, which identifies itself as a standard USB audio
device. HOwever, I'm running PulseAudio 2.0, not the latest version, which is
now 3.0. Whenever I can upgrade without breaking lots of dependencies (as is
currently an issue with the state of Debian shortly after a release, with lots
of new packages being uploaded), I'll test again.

To be clear, I don't need PulseAudio as such; this is basically an effort to
help the community a little with an increasingly common configuration that
will be with us for a long time. An article on LWN a while ago indicated that
the PulseAudio developers are keen to resolve remaining issues, and it also
appears that Luke Yelavich, known for his accessibility work in Ubuntu and
elsewhere, is a PulseAudio developer too.
