I'm afraid I know very little about PulseAudio, although I know something 
about PyGame. The only suggestion I have is that, seeing as PyGame is a 
wrapper for LibSDL, it might be useful to check if any SDL-based program 
exhibits the same behaviour. Chances are that it will, but if not, that may 
narrow your target.
