Sometimes, sound stops working on my Debian squeeze system.
I’d like to report a proper bug report, or at least identify where the problem may lie… but with hardware, linux kernel, pulseaudio and stuff… I really dunno where to check what’s wrong.
Everything is fine otherwise from looking at the Gnome desktop’s UIs… :–/

At one point, once you’ve done all you can do to troubleshoot the information and reproduce the problem, I think that you should just go ahead and use reportbug and give as much info as you can – then others may be able to help.
Assign it to whichever package it affects for you – if that package is not actually at fault, someone can always re-assign it later.
This is pretty much the advice that was given to me when I asked a similar “how to debug this problem” question.
