That's one possibility. Another possibility is that your MP3 player just
feeds data to the hardware as fast as it can decode it, so there are
never buffer underruns. We could do this in Prey, too, if you don't mind
your rifle making noise a full second behind when you fired it.
A more likely scenario: SDL doesn't convert from 44.1KHz sample rate to
48.0KHz correctly. Prey requires 44.1, lots of modern hardware only does
48...it's possible some drivers handle this better than others.
