I don't know. But I can offer a hint: when an application connects to
PulseAudio, libpulse will try to get some configuration bits from the X
server. This error happens when connecting to the X server fails.

The error also implies that the DISPLAY environment variable is set. If
it's not set, libpulse won't try to connect to the X server.

The problem is not very serious, unless you really depend on getting
some PulseAudio configuration from X11.
