There have been a few bugs submitted to the bug trackers for Ubuntu and Fedora that sound like the issue you're describing (I've included them below). By any chance would you be able to check the output of the "dmesg" command or the last few lines of the file "/var/log/messages" the next time pulseaudio dies and post the results here to the mailing list if you find anything talking about pulseaudio? You'll find some examples of what the messages might look like at the links below.

>> I have never attempted to install just a kernel other than by means of the distro installer on the dvd and I am reluctant to attempt to do so for fear that I might end with an unbootable system. What I would really would like to understand is how the kernel modulse interact with the kernel and how the module could be modified to pass the proper parameters to the kernel so that it would load and function. When I use Yast to set up the sound driver I get a message that the kernel could not load the sound module because something in the module is incorrect.
>> Knoppix recognizes and uses the sound chip automatically so I know it can be done. I have reinstalled the alsa tool kit and alsa files. Yast no longer claims that they are not found but instead that the module can not be loaded by the kernel. What information does the sound module have to pass to the kernel for it to be loaded and how can that be modified?
