[pulseaudio-discuss] module-pipe-source,sink

I have a couple of issues with module-pipe:

1. module-pipe-source and module-pipe-sink do not check the return value 
ofmkfifo(), hence PulseAudio happily opens the same pipe several times

I think PulseAudio should check if mkfifo() fails to create the FIFO file 
and abort -- see suggested patch in next mail

2. documentation at 
incorrectly states that the FIFO of module-pipe-sink defaults to 
/tmp/music.output, in fact it defaults to /tmp/pulse-xxxxxxxxx/fifo_output

3. module-pipe-source defaults to /tmp/music.input (as per documentation), 
but this is inconsistent with module-pipe-sink


regards, p.
