I can have the board play for hours and hours as well, provided I never
close the device to open it again later.  I had to modify my MIDI (with
Timidity) and audio file players to keep the device open for the duration
of the entire session.

I think someone mentioned lost interrupts.  Wouldn't interrupts be lost
during continuous play as well?

I thought close()/open() might be the cause of the problem, but a ktrace
on a player showed that block occurred during write()s, not open().

Is there an easy means to reset the device on open()?
