We are currently in the process of moving the device ACL management
from HAL to udev. This is not finished yet, at least for the PA case I
know that that there is some work left to do to fix udev/ck to make
things completely race-free.

A temporary work-around for the PA case is to make yourself a member
of the "audio" group which then gives you device access regardless if
ACLs are set up and work correctly. This will break audio if you have
multiple simultaneous session of different users.
