Patch slightly modified and applied, thanks!

Hmm, as far as I can see, the errors are not that fatal. The
pulseaudio output stops but the VM continues. I verified that by
killing the pulseaudio daemon while audio output was in progress.
How did you achieve to stop the VM due to a pulseaudio error?
