Hmmm, dunno. On shutdown it could be that pulse is killed too early
(e.g. before the sound can finish playing), but that's just a guess.
Doesn't explain startup not working....

Bit stumped to be honest, sorry.

For reassurance, it *does* work here so it's not a fundamental problem
with the design.... (I know that doesn't really help tho' ;))
