In Orca from master, as you state, 'orca -q' works when you are logged

Personally, I think that is the desired behavior. If you don't own a
process, you shouldn't be able to kill that process IMHO. Or rather, you
shouldn't be able to kill it without doing normal unixy sysadminy
process killing commands. <smile>

The same can be said for pulseaudio. You may have several users running pulseaudio, but when you are in a 
root terminal, running pulseaudio -k only kills the root pulseaudio session, if there is one. If you want to 
kill other pulse processes of other users, you need to use the appropriate kill command.

I agree, this is the way it should stay.
