Bug#684438: pulseaudio: awkward warning about running PA with per-user-sessions

Package: pulseaudio
Version: 2.0-5
Severity: minor


In the init script, PA gives a warning if PULSEAUDIO_SYSTEM_START != 1:
> PulseAudio configured for per-user sessions

Why so?

a) When reading /etc/default/pulseaudio, actually the opposite is suggested there:
> System mode is not the recommended way to run PulseAudio…

b) Even if the "conflict" of (a) was resolved by removing that text... a warning
on per user sessions would IMHO be unappropriate, if there were not really strong
reasons against them, like security issues, or something fundamentally not working.
