This is a dirty workaround, but might help.

It is possable to hook some script up that runs when gdm loads. I used 
it long time ago when some processes dident die as expected on logout 
and messed up later sessions. You shuld be able to clean up tmp ther.

I unfortunatly don't remember any details, it was a long time ago. And I 
dont realy know polypaudio, so I cant tell exactly what need to be done.

A quick look at /etc/gdm/ on the debian system I'm curently att give the 
impression that gdm use run-parts like functionality. So it shuld be 
possable to add a workaround cleanly, whithout messing up the script 
provided by ubunty.
