Yessir. The timidity update on 19 June messed up my sound, too. After
a frustrating few hours of troubleshooting I discovered that timidity
is hogging the sound server.

Which brings us to the obvious question of how do you get Pulse to
play nicely with Timidity?

This morning I removed "timidity" from the "audio" group, and rebooted. All seems well for me, but then, I don't use Timidity (to my knowledge - don't really know what it is). I do notice that a "ps ax | grep timidity" does not return anything.
