After upgrading to pipewire-pulse-0.3.49-1, I'm getting repeated core dumps in the logs (and nothing related to pulseaudio works). Downgrading to 0.3.48 fixes the problem.

systemd-coredump[1762]: [🡕] Process 1751 (pipewire-pulse) of user 1000 dumped core.

@tohojo: Thanks for the report.

Is this still a problem with 1:0.3.51?

Hmm, no I don't think so, although I have since switched back to plain pulseaudio for unrelated reasons... I'm OK with just closing this :)

Since pipewire 1:0.3.59-1 then 1:0.3.59-2 (with patch for filter-chain crash)

This symptom still remains.
