After upgraded libpulse/pulseaudio from 1.1-4 to 2.0-1, there is a audio/video synchronization problem when playing any video in VLC.
The audio track always comes with a few seconds of delaying after the video plays, but once dragged the video scroll bar, the audio went synchronized with the video again.
Downgrade libpulse/pulseaudio to 1.1-4 and restart will get rid of this problem.

Additional info:
* libpulse 2.0-1
* pulseaudio 2.0-1
* vlc 2.0.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
1. upgrade libpulse/pulseaudio to 2.0-1
2. restart the system
This task depends upon

Please try to bisect the git history between v1.0 and v2.0 to the specific commit that introduces this regression, if you can.

The commit (sink,source: Update sample rate if possible on stream uncork) introduces the regression.
I've reported this issue

Does it also come with distorted audio, each time the harddisk has to spin up?
Every single file I play starts with distorted/crackling audio, desync, then syncs and plays fine, until the file buffer needs to be filled again.
