Ah yes, forgot that one.

But then what about the blocksize, samplerate, and callbacks?  If those 
don't immediately update then the user would have to switch devs to get 
them to update.  If they immediately update then the user would need to 
press <tab> or click somewhere to make the text entry lose focus.  Both 
of those seem problematic, but if there's an Apple-like HIG solution 
I'll try to implement it.
