SMPEG requires you to have the audio device opened through SDL_OpenAudio()
before decoding. This is a stupid requirement, but that's how it is at the
moment. That's the usual cause of problems.

The other MP3 decoder (mpglib) doesn't deal with file corruption at all,
and doesn't understand ID3v2 tags. There's a hack to discard ID3v1 tags
before passing them to the decoder, and the same could be done for ID3v2,
I suppose.
