Thank you Kate. I think it is about how PA start or better when, but I also
found out I have files in .pulse and in .config/pulse only one file cookie
while the peer has all the files in .config/pulse but no directory .pulse.

I remember that this was changed between some previous versions, but I am
not sure if this makes any difference.

the problem is most likely the late spawning of PA on the peer side (after
skype is started by kicker)
