I agree with Heiko Baums and Oon-Ee Ng, this is possible because ...

If PA should be able to solve the OP's issue, then it's unimportant what
issues PA could cause.

If somebody replies with a guess, that PA might solve the issue on
GNOME, because KMix is able to solve it, then a hint, that PA could
cause serious issues IMO is ok.
