Indeed. In your case it is.

The reason I added this flag for the RTP streams is for a different
use case: when you connect the module to the monitor source of a null
sink with the purpose that this null sink then becomes a dedicated RTP
sink you can play your music to. In this case it is a good idea if
the sink (and hence the monitor source and hence the RTP stream) can
be suspended when no real application is actually connected to the
Seems I didn't think about your uses case here. Stupid me ;-)
We probably should make that flag controllable via a module parameter,
which defaults to off. I must admit that my use case is less obvious
than yours, so your desired behaviour should be the default.
Hmm, could you please file a bug about this so that I don't forget
about this? (Even better: attach a ready made patch! ;-))
