I don't see anything in pavucontrol - IIRC there is another
similarly-named package for PA, but I can't find it.

After some poor results from various Forums, I never got into the Forum
habit.  I know I need to re-train myself on that.  I'm used to general
searching, but a Forum rarely crosses my mind :-)

It's one of those frustrating things where you feel that it only needs
something simple for everything to work well - but you can't remember
what that thing is.  I know there will be those that say turn of PA,
but it has always worked OK for me - at least, for a very long time -
so I don't want to do that unless forced to.  Sooner or later
something will ring a bell - a penny will drop - and suddenly all will
be well :-D
