Just because you disabled pulse within mythtv doesn't mean the software ceases 
to have references to it. There will always need to be hooks to the pulse 
software in case you ever wanted to re-enable it.

Possibly the only correct way to achieve what you require is to build from 
source using the appropriate options (disclaimer: I don't know if that's 
possible, it's been a while since I built from source).

I am running a stock Mandriva 2010.0 with, currently, 0.22-fixes, with pulse as 
installed by the OS and have found no problems whatsoever. YMMV.
