On a related note, here we get to my pet bug, too:  444172.  I often
use my desktop with one X session to the machine itself, and another X
session remotely logged in to my work laptop via XDMCP.  However, the
per-user model means that not only can I not use PA on the laptop to
play over the desktop's speakers, but I can't continue to play
anything through the first X session.

(It's filed under ConsoleKit, as that seemed to be where the problem
was.  I'm more than happy to reassign it if that makes sense :))
