MPD and pulseaudio: underrun


On Ubuntu 16.04 I installed mpd (version 0.9.12).

This setup in mpd.conf worked in Ubuntu 14.04:

audio_output {
    type       "pulse"
    name       "pulse output"
On the same machine now running 16.04 I added:

mixer_type "software"
-- before that setting the volume failed (through mpc volume for example).

Problem: audio playback now stops very often.

Pulseaudio sends error messages like the following:

pulseaudio[21406]: Processing rewind...
pulseaudio[21406]: Implicit underrun of 'pulse output'
pulseaudio[21406]: alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo: Found underrun 27572 bytes ago (9472 bytes ahead in playback buffer)

Sorry: interruptions were caused because another output to some unavailable pulse server was still enabled.
Please ignore the post.
