Indeed, changing the default fixed the problem:

rd@blackbox:~/.pulse$ cp /etc/pulse/default.pa .
rd@blackbox:~/.pulse$ diff -u /etc/pulse/default.pa default.pa
--- /etc/pulse/default.pa       2017-01-20 00:49:55.000000000 +0100
+++ default.pa  2017-11-19 09:12:02.704724047 +0100

Do I really need a full copy of /etc/pulse/default.pa in ~/.pulse? I am 
affraid that I miss changes which package maintainers implement.... I would 
prefer to just specify the delta configuration.

My headset has a mute button, that does not have any effect at all, any ideas 
how I can fix this?

Thanks again
Rainer
