Description: No more sound with Pipewire 0.3.24 and 0.3.25.

Additional info:
* package version(s) 0.3.24, 0.3.25
* config and/or log files etc.
- Motherboard include (blacklisted) Intelaudio chipset, because of the lowquality snd_hda_intel + snd_hda_core
I use USB audio headset. After lsusb:

- Bus 002 Device 005: ID 1532:0514 Razer USA, Ltd Electra V2 USB is used for audio.

* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:

plug the headset with pipewire 0.3.23, it works, upgrade to 0.3.24 or 0.3.25 restart pipewire daemon with "systemctl --user restart pipewire" (reload of systemd units with "systemctl --user daemon-reload" is needed) it doesn't work anymore. downgrade to 0.3.23, do the same, it works again.
This task depends upon

Did you merge the pacnew files?

Upgrading alsa-card-profiles gst-plugin-pipewire pipewire-alsa pipewire-docs pipewire-jack pipewire-media-session pipewire-pulse doesn't break pipewire, only the uprade of pipewire package itself break the audio system.

ls /etc/pipewire/

Is there any pacnew files there?

No pacnew file. I finally had to downgrade all *pipewire* to 0.3.23 (alsa-card-profiles must be the last one, not the 0.3.23 currently, perhaps I needed to reset something related to it?) to really resolve the issue, I had some strange issues else (that's not a suprise with mix of API versions)
