I'm not 100% sure but with 0.9.7 pa I don't think there are many reasons
to run PA system wide any more. User switching is supported so that
switching from one user to another work pretty well (tho' I have to

Are the users in the relevant group for accessing pulse? IIRC the
default is "pulse-access"
