I'm using 0.9.16 in Debian SID, except that it doesn't remember the
volume after reboot, it's *finally* working just perfect. Well at the
current state you should update *everytime* PA gets a new release. I
know how ugly it can be, I've had problems for one year with it, been
using raw Alsa or ESD, depending on the app.

But like I said, you can adjust sawfish easily to use another playbin.
