Nice :)

Hmm, strange.

I'd speak to your distro to make sure you have all the necessary support
in your kernel needed for this. It could be related to the SYSFS related


But it seems from reading above that you've already checked this?

> Does a user have to be a member of a pulseaudio group for udev to work?

No, there shoudl not be any need for any specific group membership to
work. In fact being a member of the "audio" group on a multi user system
can actually break things (because the group membership overrides the
ACLs when switching users.
