[Pkg-pulseaudio-devel] Bug#551725: paplay does not work with lenny version of libsndfile1, and does not depend on later version

Package: pulseaudio-utils
Version: 0.9.19-1
Severity: normal


Current dependences allow pulseaudio-utils 0.9.19-1 to be installed into
mixed lenny/testing/unstable system where libsndfile1 package is at
1.0.17-4+lenny2 version.

However, in such installation attempt to play any wav file with 'paplay'
results in

> nikita at desktopvm:~> paplay /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Startup.wav
> Failed to determine sample specification from file.

This may be workarounded by installing later version of libsndfile1.

I think that pulseaudio-utils should depend on libsndfile1 version that
it actually works with :).
