Bug#924445: I finally figured this one out

pulseaudio exits by default when there's nothing connected to it.
However I have this line in ~/.pulse/default.pa

load-module module-native-protocol-tcp auth-ip-acl= auth-anonymous=1

So if the next program trying to use it is one of the programs  trying
to use it over TCP, it doesn't work.
