I think those 'error' messages in syslog are fairly typical and that you
don't actually need users in pulse-rt group at all.

is pulse daemon actually running on those machines? as user? If so, can
the user open 'Pulse Audio Manager' application (multimedia) and
connect? If not, can you have user open a shell and type 'pulseaudio -C'
