	Sending an audio file to /dev/audio gives the same response that was
	observed before the new audio drivers were integrated.  That is, if
	sent in the foreground, a pair of interrupts will kill the process;
	if in the background, the process is unkillable.  Lacking hardware,
	I cannot verify whether this is the case with the PAS and SBPro as
	cat >/dev/audio


	cat somefile.wav >/dev/sound
	Solution unknown.
