Hmm.  I see that the new src rpm has the patch, but it doesn't look like it got
actually applied in the rpm:
$ strings /compat/linux/usr/lib/| fgrep runtime

My testing was sloppy because as it turns out I hadn't removed the symlink
before it.

Alexander,  can you please take a look at this?
Looks like %patch3 is missing in %prep section, but I am not sure if that is
actually required.

BTW, you can also override these settings per user, in ~/.pulse/.
