First a general question so that I am not totally OT here... :-)
In a situation where you have a single physical seat (i.e. one keyboard and
monitor) but you might have multiple logical seats (i.e. where one user logs in,
then physically "goes away", and a second users logs in on a second X session,
without the first user's session being terminated -- although it's idle/unused
while the second user is active -- IOW, "switch user" in gnome), is there
supposed to be a pulseaudio daemon per user? That is when multiple logical
seats are logged in, one PA daemon for each seat?
If yes, when/how in the gnome session process is the per-user PA daemon supposed
to be started? Because as it happens now, on our multi-user machine, only the
first seat is getting a PA daemon.
