Hello, and thank you!

It seems to me that pulseaudio is, in Fedora, started somewhat
automagically by GNOME, and it seems that it's under the user 'pulse'.
Ok, so I started speech-dispatcher as the user pulse, and 'spd-say
test', speaks. By the way, I get the following log output after

[root at lapx ~]# spd-say test 
[root at lapx ~]# E: authkey.c: Failed to open cookie file
'//.pulse-cookie': No su
ch file or directory 
E: authkey.c: Failed to load authorization key '//.pulse-cookie': No
such file o
r directory 
W: context.c: No cookie loaded. Attempting to connect without. 

However, after starting SD as user pulse, I cannot use paplay any

[root at lapx ~]# paplay /usr/share/sounds/warning.wav 
Connection failure: Access denied 
[root at lapx ~]# 

And no, I'm stucked...

That script seems to be missing in the Fedora distribution.
