I guess I was mistaken about commenting out "load-module module-
bluetooth-policy" and "load-module module-bluetooth-discover", that did
not solve the problem for me.
A successful workaround though was to "sudo rm
/xdg/autostart/pulseaudio.desktop" which stops gnome-session from trying to
start start-pulseaudio-x11 (and block until it signals completion of startup,
which takes about 30 seconds).
Even without /xdg/autostart/pulseaudio.desktop pulse is being spawned by
something, as can be seen from "pgrep pulse", and I can play sounds
I am *not* recommending this as a general solution for everyone as I do
not know what ramifications there might be to not having
/xdg/autostart/pulseaudio.desktop that I just might not have noticed. I
assume that it is there for a reason.
