   I don't fully understand this;  with F10, I never had any problems with 
PAS and multiple users, to the degree that if my wife was playing music I 
could switch back to my login, have sounds myself and then switch back and 
her music would start back up.

   Maybe I was just always lucky with timings and logged her in after my PA 
had timed out, but that doesn't feel right.

   OK, thanks, I'll read up on that.  Although I'm suspicious that I've just 
disabled gdm sound because *it* was hogging the sound and locking up users 
logins when they tried to sound out, and that sounds a bit like having a 
system-wide PA set up.

   I'll look at timing settings as well, thanks.
