Regarding A), it would be worth to run fluidsynth for the current user, rather 
than an extra user.

> why doesn't it connect to the user's pulsaudio?

You can tell fluidsynth via the setting audio.pulseaudio.server which server to 
connect to. This setting receives a string which will then be passed as "Server 
name" to pa_simple_new()[1].

Apparently pulse audio's default behaviour is to spawn a new server for every 
user. To set up pulseaudio system-wide, it should be started as root with the 
--system command line argument, see [2].

Regarding B), the only real option you have here is to start gdb, attach to the 
fluidsynth process and provide a stack trace of the two running threads.
