I'm having an issue where running `alsactl store` or `alsactl restore` (as root) creates the /run/user/$userid/pulse directory with root:root ownership, where $userid is the unprivileged user I'm logged in under. It's problematic because the operation will override the permissions of the directory even when it's already created and pulseaudio is running. This prevents any further connections to the pulseaudio daemon because the permissions are wrong.

I can't figure out any reason that alsactl should be doing this. Can anyone help me with this problem? Here are some pastebin logs of strace showing the output of alsactl --help and alsactl store.

Is your user in the audio group? See PulseAudio - Gentoo Wiki.

The audio group is (was) empty.
Thanks anyway for your help.

Sounds like you have alsa-plugins installed with USE=pulseaudio. See here for workarounds for that problem.
