The filter coefficients should fit in their storage places. It's quite
notable if they doesn't...

Anyway - does my previous version sounds only horrible or does it crash?

This argument (and the function padSilence) evolved out of the
regarding the buffer size. The function fills the last buffer with 
silence - and has therefore to know how large a buffer is.
For example in playsound.c it's defined with

#define DEFAULT_AUDIOBUF  4096

which would be the dst_size parameter.

It comes to my eye, that playsound has the same functionality in the
function, so the padSilence function seems to be redundant. I am less
than sure
of the semantics of buffer, buffer.size, len_mult and len_cvt. If it
doesn't work, 
just remove the padSilence function and the associated parameters
(dst_size, zero, mask). Ryan, may I ask you to take a look at this
section of the code, too?
