I originally found the problem using jack, but it breaks the same way in
alsa and oss. I haven't heard from anyone experiencing the same thing,
so it might just be a problem with my machine. I did experience some
file system corruption last weekend, so it's possible that was related, 
but other libsndfile clients work fine (sooperlooper and ardour, in

Nope, didn't change anything in the Makefile.

Just sooperlooper and ardour, which work fine on the same files.

I guess the next step would be to build a debug version of libsndfile,
but unless anyone else is experiencing this, I'll probably wait until I
have a clean slate and reinstall the OS for FC5 (sometime in the next
month). Hopefully that'll fix it. I'll let you know if the problem

Let me know if you need anymore info, too, or if you need more debugging
info (do you have any machines with ccrma/FC distros in the sound lab?)
