Yes , I know that PA is not a system service

how do you setup PA for three users logged in with each of  their PA server
running even when you have three sound cards since you will need to hack the
udev rule to exclude the other two sound cards ?

I  got "Too many inputs per sink" error on PA server during software
install/remove on last week when I run pulseaudio on a terminal.

No much info in the server log, the most common PA clients were "tooltips
popup"  when I move the mouse cursor across the different part/icon on the
system bar

Is there any limit on the the number of PA clients connected to PA server ?
