[pulseaudio-discuss] question FIFO

On an Ubuntu 11.10 system (using Gnome), I've copied the default.pa file to my home dir
and the only change I've made to it is uncommented the line
I then logged in remotely using a GUI (xrdp) and I verified that
1) a 2nd PA server has been auto started
2) fifo_output and fifo_output.monitor have been created
3) in sound preferences, fifo_output is the default audio out device
When I try to play an audio file using Totem Movie Player, it just waits,
presumably for someone to read from the FIFO? If this is the case, this is
exactly what I want.
My question is how do I read from the FIFO?
pacat -d fifo_output does not work
parec -d fifo_output.monitor does not work
I must be doing something wrong, but what?
thanks for your help.
