Ok, I build the CVS version from openal.org (Linux_Spec1-0 tag), and
it's ok now :)
Anyway, that's strange, because the version of openal in Debian is
tagged 0.20050806, so it must be a recent version (maybe, a _too_ recent
version, as you notice above ... ?)

Ok, that's what I wanted to hear ;) So, fs2_open is like a testing
ground for Icculus version, am I correct ?
Let's see what this fs2_open thing looks like :p
Thanks for answers !
