I cannot see any constructive here.
its not that far away i had similar problems with ALSA or ESD.
so "i hate that" is not usefull lol
problems like this are solvable. anything else is just stupid rant...

there are 2 possible solutions:
1. stream the "root" sound to the user. (see fenrirs 
"" script)
2. run pulse system wide (ALSA does the same here caused by design, what 
it doesn't make it more secure by design....)

cheers chrys
