well, i was about to point out that i'd already tried PULSE_SERVER,
but i tried it again, and now it works. dammit. :-)
i have no idea why it didn't work before. i found the command in
my shell history to re-run it, so it wasn't a typo. i've used pulse
to listen to some music in the meantime, but i'd be surprised if that
affected how pavucontrol works. :-/
well.... wait. it now works remotely, but not locally.
okay. i'm confused.
