When playing with realaudio's raplayer3.0, if you tell it to convert 16bit
sound to 8bit, it blows chunks:

   232 raplayer NAMI  "/emul/linux/dev/mixer"
   232 raplayer NAMI  "/dev/mixer"
   232 raplayer RET   open 7
   232 raplayer CALL  ioctl(0x7,_IOW('M',0xfe,0x4),0xf7bfd2fc)
   232 raplayer RET   ioctl -1 errno -22 Unknown error: 4294967274

	get raplayer 3.0 for linux, go to a realaudio site, go to
	edit->preferences->advanced->8bit, and then hit "play".

	none known.
