Yes, sound without any problems now. I do wonder how pulseaudio got onto my system though, and also why it suddenly broke.

The only thing that I can think of is to find out why or how pulseaudio became a part of your distribution is to find a up to date list of every single package that makes up the entire Debian distribution.(Good Luck)

I'd start at the Debian website with the investigation and perhaps write to a Debian Testing Team or a Debian Developer. It might be hard to get a hold of a Debian Team member or a Debian Developer but if you insist you'll achieve your goal.

Glad to hear you have sound now.

I believe that you must have installed pulse at some point...possibly it was a depedancy of some other package?

Do you install software from synaptic or BASH? If you use BASH and havent cleaned the history, you should be able to see every command you have entered.
