Comment(by rt):

 Hmm, strange. I have the same asoundrc file as you. When I run alsamixer I
 ALSA lib pulse.c:243:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect:
 Connection refused
 cannot open mixer: Connection refused

 When I run mplayer with pulse output:
 AO: [pulse] Init failed: Connection refused
 Failed to initialize audio driver 'pulse'
 Could not open/initialize audio device -> no sound.
 Audio: no sound

 And VLC:
 Audio output failed:
 The audio device "pulse" could not be used:
 Connection refused.

 Same with mpg123.

 I get sound in KDE/phonon, but not the full PA capabilities. Seems like it
 is using alsa. I tried deleting the .pulse and .config/pulse folders and
 re-installing PA, but didn't help. I don't understand cause it worked fine
 with PA 2.1. Maybe the problem is specific for my card (Intel HD audio,
 Realtek ALC269VB codec). What card do you have?

 I noticed the following in the logs (repeated several times):
 Dec 18 22:23:28 mephisto pulseaudio[2666]: [pulseaudio] socket-server.c:
 bind(): Address already in use
 Dec 18 22:23:28 mephisto pulseaudio[2666]: [pulseaudio] module.c: Failed
 to load module "module-esound-protocol-u
 Dec 18 22:23:28 mephisto pulseaudio[2666]: [pulseaudio] main.c: Module
 load failed.
 Dec 18 22:23:28 mephisto pulseaudio[2666]: [pulseaudio] main.c: Failed to
 initialize daemon.
 Dec 18 22:23:28 mephisto pulseaudio[2663]: [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon
 startup failed.

 Any ideas?
