Tests in Peru deployment team are bringing this issue up.

It doesn't seem limited to when user was invited.

I tried it in a mixed environment using salut between one XO1.5 and two XO1.
Seems to affect mainly XO1.

Adding logs, GST_MESSAGE_ERROR indicates when the error is occurring, i.e. only when receiving chat messages and trying to speak them. Own messages are unaffected.

This is being tracked downstream at

Confirmed the issue is present in OLPC OS as well.

I can confirm the issue only happens when using the gst-plugins-espeak backend. When switching to espeak command mode it will play successfully on all peers sharing the session.

Here's the patch for the workaround:
