Pretty sure. Made .wav file with mpg123 on alpha and played it  on intel
machine. same bad effect. and tried amp, which decodes just fine on 
alpha (but misses a lot of mpg123's features)... I noticed with amp
that WSS is not optimal quality, but... mpg123 decoding is a totally 
different level of badness (track is barely recognizable)...

I also send a mail to the author of mpg123, but no reply yet.
