pulseaudio "pa_stream_writable_size() failed" problem in Fedora 13


Pulseaudio on Fedora 13 keeps crashing with the message "pa_stream_writable_size() failed: connection terminated" on Fedora 13. This problem only exists when playing music through programs using gstreamer (such as Totem or Rhythmbox, but not VLC). Additionally, this problem only occurs when playing certain songs (such as almost anything from the OGG version of the most recent Severed Fifth album).
My hardware (from /proc/asound/cards):
Quote:
0 [SB ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI SB
HDA ATI SB at 0xfe7f4000 irq 16
1 [HDMI ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI
HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfe9e8000 irq 19
My computer has a 3.4 GHz quad core Phenom II processor so I don't think it is a matter of lacking the processing power.
Also, in my /etc/pulse/daemon.conf file, I have modified the line
Code:
;resample-method = speex-float-3
to read
Code:
resample-method = src-sinc-best-quality
.

I've also tried changing it to
Code:
resample-method = speex-float-10
but have had no success.

I'm thinking that my problem started upon switching the resample method for PulseAudio (that's when I started to notice it), however I don't think that it should be causing this much trouble.

Does anybody know how I can fix PulseAudio's to crashing (for this instance)?
