bug 15559 repairs the pulseaudio patch the 1.1.10 broke. Yes development tree these kinds of breaks are to be expected. Patches are in the development tree because they need testing.
Difference between pulseaudio and dmix is fairly major.
Adding per application volume controls ands a extra level of mixing and altering.
dmix there is the application sound output buffers and output buffer to sound card and quite simple transformations between most complex dmix alteration is a bit width alteration.
Pulseaudio there is application sound output buffers these are then mixed to a intermittent buffer then applications volume control alteration and other alterations applied then finally passed on to card for output.
