pulseaudio process does not close on logout
|Assignee:||OI Userland||% Done:|
When running MATE desktop session, and log out (from GUI session),
I can see that 2 processes stay active: gam_server and pulseaudio.
Where gam_server closes itself after minute or two, pulseaudio user process stays active and does not close after user logout.
I suppose pulseaudio should close after user logged out and not stay active.

I'm seeing exactly the same problem. Here's my copy during a desktop session:
UID PID PPID C STIME TTY TIME CMD mills 67 1 0 Jul 12 ? 0:03 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --start --log-target=syslog
As you can see here, pulseaudio has already daemonized itself, becoming a child of process 1 (init). In this state, it can't respond to a desktop logout. It needs to remain a child of the process that started it, probably mate-session, so that it can receive the logout signal correctly.
