Problem moved from bug 1939, comment #6 and #7:

------- Comment #6 From Pierre Ossman 2008-01-16 19:31 [reply] -------

A directory called pulse-<username> got created in %TEMP%. Everything else
ended up in %TMP%.

I believe this is a PA problem, rather than a tlclient one. A grep indicates:

src/pulsecore/core-util.c:#define PA_USER_RUNTIME_PATH_PREFIX "%TEMP%\\pulse-"

If we should change this, we should probably change it upstream, right? 

Also, I wonder if it's really necessary to create this directory. On UNIX, the
directory is created in /tmp. Perhaps this is the cause of interference with
the system PA daemon, as described in Issue5647. 

Re-assigning to PA guru.
