If you really want to make ~/.pulse a local filesystem, you could bind
mount it before starting pulse but after mounting NFS
sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/home/$USER/.pulse
sudo chown -R $USER.$USER /usr/local/home/$USER
Run at every boot:
sudo mount -o bind /usr/local/home/$USER/.pulse $HOME/.pulse
(make sure the perms are correct on both the mountpoint and the real
That should work, but is a bit of a hick work around.
Hopefully the newly available tdm support will make this unnecessary.
