If you mean having all the clients connect (e.g. applications with
libcanberra support or similar for sound events), then there are
basically two ways.

The first is as Luke suggests. These clients will automatically
reconnect to PA if they need to (provided you have a vaguely recent
libcanberra), after it is restarted and run in debug mode.

Alternatively you can simply set debug-level to "debug" in daemon.conf
(in /etc/pulse or ~/.pulse), and then "grep pulseaudio /var/log/messages"
