    Don't connect with PA_CONTEXT_NOFAIL

    vodik committed Apr 8, 2013
    NOFAIL means we don't fail if the daemon is not available when
    pa_context_connect() is called and instead enter PA_CONTEXT_CONNECTING
    state and wait for the daemon to appear.
    So currently if pulseaudio isn't running or available, ponymix will just
    block and wait. Since a lot of people use ponymix bound to their volume
    keys, this could potentially mean spawning 100s of processes before
    actually catching on that things aren't working.
    PA_CONTEXT_NOFLAGS was introduced in 0.9.19. Its really just 0.
