I know the reason now.
For every session, i need to turn my hdmi receiver off and on again, and
then all sessions can use the system wide pulseaudio.
Without that, the sessions put the audio to the pa device, but the sound
is not hearable...
doesn't really make sense.. but well...
Wish you a nice day
