When i kill a pulseaudio server, after it respawns, clients from other accounts are unable to access the pulseaudio unix domain socket file even though it is there.
It only works after a reboot of the system. Anyone shed some light?

After 'pulseaudio --kill' command Pulseaudio will respawn in a different state:
Systemd pulseaudio.service fails (see
systemctl --user status pulseaudio)
Server changes from unix:/run/user/1000/pulse/native to just username
Pulseaudio modules 'module-x11-publish' and 'module-x11-xsmp'
Changes to server and modules can be seen in Pulseaudio System Tray - pasystray
to restart Pulseaudio use:
systemctl --user restart pulseaudio
