I think it's pretty clear what the problem is.
PA does not support multiple users on one system..
I told you if you intend to replace the existing audio system and
build up compatibility layers
add try to do it right. People might have had an idea back then when
they allowed multiple
users to access the audio system. The authorization is normally
handled by /etc/group, there
I can clearly define who is allowed to access audio and who not.
You define this behavior as a bug just because you don't seem to
understand how the audio system
worked before pulseaudio came up - definitely a good way to start.
