Good good. Wonder why Ubuntu went for system wide? Lots of nice things
don't work in system wide mode :( (as you've found! + other things like
user switching; locking out the inactive user from sound access and
granting it to the other, now active user etc.)
Generally speaking the only time to use system wide is on an embedded,
user-less system or when all users require to output sound
simultaneously (e.g. on a multi-head, but single sound o/p system.)
