Just for completeness, I should point out that it only affects me if the 
binary has the setuid bit set, but that will just be the pulse logic 
that only calls the pa_polkit_check() when it has rooty privs (or rather 
then pa_have_caps() is true which I don't think is the case when not 

I'll try and create a small test app for the upstream devs as, this was 
uber confusing to debug in the pulse app.
