I'm currently of the opinion that the original fix was broken...I'm not
certain the build box picked up the entire changeset for the fix on x86.

Here's a sanity-checked x86 build which (for me, at least) appears good:


The amd64 build was built by hand, and haven't heard any reports, which
could mean nothing at all:


Everyone on Linux should probably use those builds until a more official
patch shows up.

MP3 playback isn't supported at all right now (I'll remedy this
later)...on Windows, we used Miles Sound System for mp3 decoding (just
decoding, OpenAL is used for everything else), and there're various
reasons I can't/won't use it on Linux. I'll probably hook up AL_EXT_mp3
or something on non-win32 platforms. Ogg decoding should work, but:

The playlist editor is busted, too. This will also be corrected later, I
hope. Generally, on soundcards that allow multiple programs to open the
audio device, it's better to just use XMMS or something anyhow, but
that's just my opinion.
