Actually, I understand if gdm needs to play sounds and is therefore just
another PA sound client (with user gdm), but please don't make gdm the
app that starts the sound server for user desktop sessions. The better
place to make sound server startup an all-in-one solution is the sound
gdm would start a PA daemon of its own that runs as "gdm" user. Then
when the user logs in a second PA daemon is started from gnome-session
that runs as the actual user.
That's not implemented right now. But that's the idea we're heading to.
