Apparently it keeps getting reinstalled. I encountered it yesterday
when installing kernel updates and a few other things. I didn't bother
to check what package is depending on it, only noticed it once my test
results on http://test.winehq.org showed multiple failures in sound

$ sudo apt-get remove --purge pulseaudio*

worked for me.
