Ahm, PA is spawned by the user session, so you need to load (if at all)
after you log in and PA is started.

I write (if at all), because I think PA can remember what you were doing
before, but it could be also version related issue.

Last but not least. I compiled 12.2 because all the rest had too many bugs.
Don't know which is the version now in stretch - I got so pissed. Now
finally it works 99.5%. My issues were also related to removable (BT)
source. It was nasty with 11.1. 11.99 was better, but got a hint about 12.2
and it is peace now.

hope it helps
