Yes we've tested with 0.9.13, per-user daemon.
For debugging purposes, I've run PA in foreground and I didn't notice 
any auto-respawn messages on console output with log level set to 9. Do 
we have the possibility to disable timer based scheduling for testing?

Well, we're still using the stable version 1.0.17. I'll try with the 
latest RC versions and report the result back here again.
