Good job on finding the bug!

<excuse type="weak">
I did add a debug printf() to check the value of sdlcvt.len_mult, but I
too assumed it was an integer.

We already deviate from SDL's current behaviour, since converting between
arbitrary sample frequencies violates the "buffer length has to be a power
of two" rule. So I don't see any reason to needlessly cling to the SDL way,
if we can think of any better one. I doubt this code will make it back into
any 1.x version of SDL anyway.

Obviously as long as conversions are done in-place, the converter will
need a way to request a larger buffer, but the size shouldn't necessarily
have to be a multiple of the old length, right?

Not while I'm at work. ;-)
