OK so this has been fixed by adding the system_r role to the
unconfined_u user. It seems that Fedora is already doing this, any
reason it's not in the refpolicy?

Also, pulse audio is now running:

unconfined_u:system_r:pulseaudio_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 bigon 3820 0.0  0.1 304728 6716 ? S<l 00:13   0:01 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --start --log-target=syslog

Do we also want to have pulseaudio transition to his own context when
started in the user session?
