Good thought, and have checked this. Especially relevant with the multi-user situation. I will check on the other enlightening ALSA suggestions you have made.

Thank you for this! I have always used 'xhost +' and drop TCP 6000 (eth0) on the host firewall (on my "single-user" workstation anyway). I've tried to find more secure ways to share the X cookie but for one reason or another, they never worked out. I will try this!
