Hi, Pulseaudio from [testing] just updated to 2.99.2-1, now mpd audio
output (running mpd as my own user) fails with the following:-

Nov 19 14:45 : output: Failed to enable "MPD Pulse Output" [pulse]:
pa_context_connect() has failed: Connection refused
Nov 19 14:45 : player_thread: problems opening audio device while playing

Setting up pulseaudio to listen on TCP locally as in the wiki works, but I
never needed to do that before. Can anyone else verify this? Is it perhaps
logind related (worked fine before this last pulseaudio update)?
