[chuck-users] WvOut: writes soundfile, but always silent

Same here. I can't get WvOut to work in chimera on Linux. Simple example 
which works on

Noise n => dac => WvOut rec => blackhole;
0.25 => n.gain;
"rec_test" => rec.wavFilename;
2::second => now;

but with I have to abort with ctrl+c and get:

chuck: chuck_oo.cpp:125: void Chuck_VM_Object::release(): Assertion 
`m_ref_count > 0' failed.

and silent audio file. No success with WvOut2 either.

Different issue, but I also get this often when chuck is exiting:
     terminate called after throwing an instance of 'RtError'
     Aborted (core dumped)
(the chirp.ck example in the basic folder always gives this error)
