   This is an excellent piece of information. We are changing our audio
API to take buffer delay into account, but I didn't know the value of
this delay under BeOS. Hopefully something can be done here.

   Alternatively, you can use the --desync <millisec> option to delay
the audio. Note that this option is currently buggy and you should enter
a microsec value until it is fixed.

   I don't know. He's been contributing a lot of code, but we never
really talked, so I don't know what he's currently doing.

   Thanks a lot for the rest of your comments, I will commit them to the
CVS tree ASAP.
