Tip, for you and others:
If you want to separate stuff for security reasons, you can use a VM
with kvm -soundhw es1370. kvm supports pulse and will redirect all the
sound of the VM to your pulse server. Just set, under the kvm-starting
user, ~/.pulse/client.conf with default-server = ..., and enable the
pulse networking on the server, and you'll hear the Windows-Login-Sound
from your pulse. The VM guest doesn't need to know about pulse. I find
For the pulse people:
Please don't tell people that the problems they run into are by design.
You'll have people running away, or even have quite negative feelings
about pulse. Rather, fix the limitations, please.
