Well that's the thing, PA should not die when the session manager dies.
It's meant to behave nicely.

I susepct it's the session manager that is killing the PA process.

If you unload the various X11 modules (only the ones for the session
you're logging out of tho' - the same modules will be loaded twice, once
for each session) gracefully via pacmd/pactl, then log out, does PA
still die?

If not, then the problem is in the session manager.
