Cracking sound in Audacity in Ubuntu 13.10

While audio was playing fine in audacious and other music player in my Ubuntu 13.10, it was playing very fast and cracking in audacity. A solution that worked for me was to disable udev in the pulseaudio configuration

The one line solution was to change /etc/pulse/default.pa

sudo gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa

existing

### Automatically load driver modules depending on the hardware available
.ifexists module-udev-detect.so
load-module module-udev-detect
.else
### Use the static hardware detection module (for systems that lack udev support)
load-module module-detect
.endif

new

### Automatically load driver modules depending on the hardware available
.ifexists module-udev-detect.so_HACK_NO_UDEV
load-module module-udev-detect
.else
### Use the static hardware detection module (for systems that lack udev support)
load-module module-detect
.endif

The next thing was to quit Audacity, kill pulse audio

pulseaudio --kill

then restart Audacity.
