thats strange. it should be the same every time. perhaps its actually only 
3.5.0 (no LFE)
or is it actually dts perhaps?

that could be worthwhile. perhaps a setting to set 2 ch, 6 ch devices 
individually in setup.

I was playing with your test file and have found out that it is partially 
if you zero out or remove the first 500k, then it works properly.
Im trying to find a fix for this. Ive seen this happen for the video part 
sometimes too.
where mplayer and xine are tolerant of such streams, myth is not as tolerant 
as Id like it to be.
this seems to be in laf.

Ill post the timestretch patch soon as that appears to be working. the 
segfault went away, probably due to something else that was fixed.
