  If you use hal-autodetect module, PA attaches directly to hardware,
which locks the device. I've disabled hal-autodetect and now PA uses
default ALSA sink, which comes to be routed through "dmix". Now
non-pulse ALSA clients work along PA. Of course outputing from PA to
dmix will bring tha wrath of PA developers upon your head.
  Solution blessed as "correct" is to configure ALSA (alsalib) output to
PA, but for me it feels little hacky. It's first thing described on
