Do not make new users members of the group pulse.

I suggest to remove pulse from the isgroupinsalix list in usersetup.

Make users members of the pulse group don't hurt but is useless:
  • If the system is started at the user level, which is the default, the pulse group is not used at all.
  • If it is started system wide (chmod 755 /etc/rc.d/rc.pulseaudio), in Slackware and derivatives the group to which a user should belong to be granted access to the pulse daemon is audio (set at compile time in the SlackBuild), which is already in the isgroupinsalix list.
Not an urgent fix at all, just my two cents for today ;)
