Package: pulseaudio
Version: 1.1-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

During investigation of some crashes, I noticed in .xsession-errors an
error about pactl not being found.  The file
/usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11 from package pulseaudio uses pactl,
which is in package pulseaudio-utils.  However, the latter package is
only suggested by the former package.

/usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11: 26: /usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11: 
/usr/bin/pactl: not found
