Description Red 2019-09-22 01:50:26 UTC
if you have run "sudo audio-entropyd -d pulse" while using Plasma, it leaves pulseaudio open when you log out.

Logging back in results in duplicate pulseaudio processes, and audio-entropyd crashes when you try and run it again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Plasma and open a terminal.
2. Run "pgrep -a pulseaudio" to make sure PulseAudio is running.
3. Run "sudo audio-entropyd -d pulse"
4. Log out of Plasma.
5. Type "pgrep -a audio-entropyd"
6. Type "pgrep -a pulseaudio"
7. Run "sudo audio-entropyd -d pulse"
Actual Results:  
5. audio-entropyd is not running.
6. Duplicate pulseaudio processes.
7. "audio-entropyd -d pulse" fails to run.

Expected Results:  
5. audio-entropyd should be running.
6. Only one pulseaudio process.
7. You shouldn't need to run audio-entropyd again, and if you do it shouldn't crash.

The duplicate processes will restart every time you attempt to kill them unless "autospawn: no" is temporarily added to /etc/pulse/client.conf.

Not sure what exactly this is a bug with: sys-apps/audio-entropyd, media-sound/pulseaudio, or something connected to Plasma.

Are you sure this should be marked no maintainer? It might be a media-sound/pulseaudio issue.
