I have used Phonon GStreamer exclusively for aeons now... but without 
PulseAudio. It has only bitten me once in the 2-3 years I can remember using 
it exclusively.

On the other hand, I only use JuK and the normal KDE notification sounds. 
YMMV, but I just wanted to throw out that it's possible to get phonon-gst to 
work, I'm not sure what would be happening different on your system though.
