 I'm reopening the ticket for you, but you probably ought to be opening a
 new ticket for this issue. It is indeed related but apparently due to
 another issue:

 Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: Unable to find launchd socket
 when setuid

 What does `ls -l /opt/local/bin/pulseaudio` tell, has it indeed been
 installed suid root?

 Checking on a Linux box (KaOS, to be sure it uses an up-to-date version) I
 note that that's not the case there; the audio daemon runs under my own
 UID, without any special permissions. Mac OS is a different beast, but I
 wouldn't expect it to require special privileges to play sound, much less
 so than on Linux (and even there it's rarely necessary).
