In theory, this chmod shouldn't be needed, this is probably
console-kit's fault... getfacl should show your user as being granted
permission here... Oh wait, you are using system mode right? Then
perhaps the pulse user does not have access. Perhaps the pulse user
should be added to the "audio" group (assuming the files are group owned
by the audio group.

Ahhh indeed. This is the error I got when running pulse on my PS3! I
really should have reported this before, but I didn't really play that
long with Linux on the PS3.

This just proves the device and permissions work. It seems the assert
above is the real problem.

Well, perhaps, depends what the assert above means :D
Perhaps the right shift is dodgy on PPC arch?
