[pulseaudio-discuss] pactl times out

I've recently upgraded from 0.9.6 to 0.9.8.  I used to be able to use 
pactl -s <server> list, or pactl list, to see the status of the server.

Now, with 0.9.8, pactl just sits there, and eventually reports "timeout".

linux# pactl list
Connection failure: Timeout

linux# pactl --version
pactl 0.9.8
Compiled with libpulse 0.9.8
Linked with libpulse 0.9.8

Which module does pactl attach to?  Is auth-anonymous=1 sufficient?

The server default.pa has:

load-module module-hal-detect
load-module module-native-protocol-unix auth-anonymous=1
load-module module-cli-protocol-tcp
load-module module-native-protocol-tcp auth-anonymous=1
load-module module-http-protocol-tcp
load-module module-zeroconf-publish
load-module module-null-sink sink_name=sphinx_record description="Sphinx 
Recording Source"
load-module module-null-sink sink_name=sphinx_playback 
description="Sphinx Playback Source"
load-module module-combine sink_name=misterhouse 
load-module module-volume-restore
load-module module-rescue-streams
