That's actually what the first (unsubmitted) version did, and I just 
couldn't understand where the annoying ticking during playback was 
coming from. Then I realized that it would be much simpler if I just 
increased the buffer size and decoded directly into the buffer, but I 
*still* couldn't get rid of that damned ticking.

Then I realized that the bug was in the playsound audio callback.

(This was the cleanup I mentioned when I jokingly suggested that we 
should keep the playsound bug around for a bit longer. :-)
