This may be what's happening looking at the code, this function is
responsible for creating the /tmp/pulse-user folder:


And this check:
will return an EACCESS (permission denied I believe) error if it is not
created in a secure manner.

Try hacking that check to in your compilation to see if it works for you.

I guess the code should check not for a Win32 OS but rather a filesystem
that does not support owners/groups/perms, but that's no doubt a bit

Hope this is the problem.
