Hmm, that sounds bad - it should not do this.

What version of QEMU is this with - I think that needs to be fixed in
QEMU

I'd prefer not - AFAIK, QEMU should not be doing this - if PulseAudio
is desired when running as root, then the admin should start it ahead

if running non-root in the desktop session IMHO.
