Well, this was the magic incantation to get the sound coming out.
This works as a regular user and if I run pulse audio as the root but NOT
in system mode.
System mode still gives me the errors about not being able to load modules.
The question is, do I even need to use system mode if this is an embedded
application with only the root user?
