Here is what it looks like on my machine:

If you put a local pulseaudio config in the extra user for remote use
without respawn and did:
killall pulseaudio; pulseaudio --start
It may work. The original might keep trying to start though until you
logged out. you could also run a system wide pulseaudio, But I think you
want different setups when running local and remote. so it is best to stop
and restart with respawn off. But, to be honest, you have about reached
the end of my knowledge anyway.
