    If I remember correctly, I "fixed" this a few months ago in my tree, but had
    since lost the patch in a nasty HD crash (burn, actually). If that's indeed
    what I fixed, I eventually decided not to send it to the official tree,
    because I figured 'cat something.wav > /dev/dsp' isn't the proper way to
    play a sound file anyhow, and proper sound players are capable of stopping
    the sound immediately (they have a system call to do that).

    Maybe this is a non-issue, hence. When I get some time, I'll take a look
