After updating my LMDE to the Update Pack 3 I'm facing this strange audio issue. When I'm listening to songs on Rhythmbox and also connected to Empathy IM, when a new message arrives on my IM, I hear the notification sound of Empathy, but the background song playback at Rhythmbox gets stuck for a moment.
Even a more worse scenario. When the playback at Rhythmbox is paused, then a new IM notification on the Empathy IM Client starts the playback at Rhythmbox by itself.
I didn't have this sort of audio glitch before updating to update pack 3 and gnome 3. How do I fix it?
