[pulseaudio-discuss] logged in twice using pulse

We are running Ubuntu 8.04 on a Sunray (thin client) server. Every thin 
client login gets its own AUDIODEV and its own pulseaudio server.

However, it is possible for the same user to have simultaneous logins 
from different locations on different thin clients. The first obstacle 
to this is the single pid file per uid, which can be sort of worked 
around by using --use-pid-file=false.

The second obstacle is that pulseaudio uses a variety of uid named unix 
domain sockets, which are unavailable to the second instance.

Is there any workaround for this?
