reassign 679485 lxsession-edit 

Pulseaudio is intended to autostart as part of the usersession, hence it
installs a desktop file in the autostart dir. If you don't want it started
either edit the .desktop file and add Hidden=true or if it's done in a session
by e.g. lxsession-edit the following sections from the XDG standard comes into

Implementation Notes

If an application autostarts by having a .desktop file installed in the system
wide autostart directory, an individual user can disable the autotomatic start
of this application by placing a .desktop file of the same name in its personal
autostart directory which contains the key Hidden=true.

It's not pulseaudios fault that either lxsession or lxsession-edit don't
implement this properly :)

I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.
