I'm not sure I remember the bug. Can you please post a link?

Also, are you creating X11 sessions as the same user or as two different

Interesting, thanks for that, I'll take a look - I don't really follow
the libglade stuff so not aware of deprecation etc., but I'll certainly
find out. Did you convert the git master version? If so, if you could
provide git formatted patches, (e.g. commit your changes ot your local
git repo and then run either git format-patch or even git sent-email),
then you would be properly credited for your work :)

It's not in default.pa but that's deliberate. It's currently only used
on KDE and thus the module is loaded by the script start-pulseaudio-kde.
It can be used by non-KDE users in a kind of passive mode, but then
there is no easy easy way to enable the routing only under KDE.

Bits of the functionality will ultimately be merged into the core and
thus will be available generally in the future.
