Bug#603596: not play well with pulseaudio?

I'm experiencing the same symptom. I've enabled system-wide PulseAudio in

pcm.pulse {
    type pulse
ctl.pulse {
    type pulse
pcm.!default {
    type pulse
ctl.!default {
    type pulse

when gdm3 starts and plays a sound through PulseAudio when the login screen
pops up,  but unfortunately since PulseAudio service has not  been started
(PulseAudio  is run as a per-session daemon which is Debian's default) ,
it fails and stuck there for serveral seconds.

So I removed  the configs in  /etc/asound.conf  and created $HOME/.asoundrc
the same content. then logout and login again, gdm3 will play the sound
through  Alsa instead of PulseAudio and does  not stuck any more.

I've also tested that by totally removing PulseAudio and using Alsa, the
will not show itself either.
