Who came up with the idea that 44.1 AC3 passes through properly for
me?  I don't have any 44.1khz AC3 streams to test with - just 48
(works) and 32 (doesn't work).  I've done enough research to know that
32khz AC3 streams are somewhat common for firewire SD captures - but I
have yet to hear of anything that uses 41khz AC3.  I suppose I could
demux that test clip I posted at the beginning, re-encode the audio to
41khz AC3, re-mux, and test it, but I don't see how the answer to that
would help the problem at all.
