  pulseaudio not working in Virtualbox

Status in pulseaudio package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I run my "work" VMs and in Xubuntu pulse audio often does not start.
  In this dump I tried to start music through Firefox and through my
  media player quodlibet and none of the audio starts.

  See attachment with the pulseaudio volume control and quodlibet stuck
  on time 0:00 like Firefox.

  I do not have the problem with plain Ubuntu, Ubuntu Mate nor with
  Ubuntu Studio.

  The problem is annoying, because I use Xubuntu for office and
  communication like Email and the WhatsApp/Firefox/ICE combination and
  with this bug WhatsApp is useless.
