"inactive" means the xpra-sound process (PID 49163) is not used. The value
of "TIME+" column from top command is not increased anymore (0:00.12).
 "switched on" means I can listen the sound from client ( was interrupted
before ) after reattaching xpra. (1)

After (1), at the server, one new xpra-sound process was appeared:
main-xpra(pid 1145), old-sound-xpra(49163), new-sound-xpra(53243).
I can't also kill old-sound-xpra process by "kill 49163", but can kill by
"kill -9 49163"

# top -c -b -n1 |grep xpra

I tried running xpra 0.16.0 r11304 for server(trusty), same as client (MS
Windows 7). But the sound is disabled if I'm running xpra with it.
I attached the output of xpra attach with '-d sound'

I found this ticket <https://www.xpra.org/trac/ticket/1003>, and used "xpra
control :100 sound-output stop && xpra control :100 sound-output start mp3"
to restarting the sound.
