Pulseaudio state database file names different between meson and autotools
Value of CANONINCAL_HOST is different between autotools and meson builds.
As a result pulseaudio state database files have different names:
autotools: ~/.config/pulse/XXXX-card-database.x86_64-pc-linux-gnu.gdbm meson: ~/.config/pulse/XXXX-card-database.x86_64.gdbm
If user would update to binaries produced by different build system this would effectively reset their configuration since state database will use different file names.
