Attachments: make pa_context_connect() return 0 when waiting for D-Bus

Description Stefan Brüns 2014-10-14 16:51:32 UTC
enum pa_context_flags states:

PA_CONTEXT_NOFAIL: Don't fail if the daemon is not available when pa_context_connect() is called, instead enter PA_CONTEXT_CONNECTING state and wait for the daemon to appear.

in case noautospawn is set (either via flags or using pa client.conf) and no server has been specified, pa start listening on DBUS for a new server, and the state is PA_CONTEXT_CONNECTING, but pa_context_connect returns -1.
