The bug now is:
I start i.e. audacious on first display, switch to the second,
start another audacious there. Both are playing. I stop audacious on the
second and logout there. That stops audacious on first too, as while
pulseaudio gets restarted, audacious still holds connection to the
server that died. What's more (but that's (argueably) probably a bug in
audacious), I need to kill audacious, as I can't just close it then.

As for debug messages, it's probably a matter of personal preference,

- stuff like "gtk critical" is one thing, printing messages on missing
non function essential (and as you mentioned yourself, often unneeded)
modules is another. I'd go with a graphical indicator for that stuff
(not a popup, rather an icon, or even a square filled with a different

While every now and then people run GUI programs from terminals, usually
they're run in a way that sends the output effectively to /dev/null.
