What happens if you create the directory /tmp/pulse-sundaram?  (This
isn't the solution but I think it led me to realize something -- My /tmp
is a tmpfs so I would have to be creating it in a startup script
everytime which isn't the case.)

I eventually added it via the gnome sessions interface so it's not
running as root.  (Although I look at the sessions control panel now and
there's no mention of pulseaudio anywhere....)

Are you running esd or artsd?  Maybe that's locking the device files or
the esd socket (so pulse can be compatible with all the esd consumers).
