Hmm, what would it take to change/fix this? This is part of the reason
I can only use PD in the studio, and not live... Sounds like there is
a need for some kind of better cross-platform soundfile player
external. This might be PD's biggest weakness for audio use!

Maybe Georg's [sndfile] would help but his post didn't give any info
on what it does.
