It smells like you've not got a session manager running in your X session.
Check the script and see the bit where it checks for $SESSION_MANAGER
If this module fails to load then PA will honour the idle timeouts (this
is perfectly normal - PA is designed to exit after a period of
inactivity) as the session manager connection will not keep PA alive. PA
should autospawn again, but it wont support the x11 root window property
setting and thus wont support piggy backing on top of SSH's X11 forwarding.
Hope this helps.
