Did you install adobe-release RPM from Adobe within the chroot?  yum 
will not find it if you do not have Adobe release.

You should really use Flash 10 instead of Flash 9.  Flash 10 works a lot 
better especially for sound.

It is possible that more environment variables are needed to direct a 
local app to use the pulseaudio daemon.  You might want to check with 
upstream, I recall they tackled this recently.

Also make sure you are using the LATEST builds of ldm, ltspfs and ltsp 
on both your server and client chroot.  Latest builds were yesterday.

Over 30 seconds the first time, or even subsequent times on the same user?
