OS X SDL/SDL_mixer crashes and system freeze up

First off – using the latest stable SDL, SDL_mixer, and SDL_image
(the universal binaries).

Total System Freeze

This only occurs with sound enabled, so I believe it is a SDL_mixer
issue and not a SDL one.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Download [](http://sourceforge.net/project/
  2. Startup, and enable sound: System Setup -> Sound Settings
  3. Start a local game: Game -> Local Game
  4. Quit (Command-Q)
  5. If the game quit cleanly start it up again, enter a local game and
    quit again.
  6. Your system should freeze up. You can still move your mouse,
    though. You will have to reboot.

console.log has this informative entry after reboot (queue is my

Crash in SDL_mixer -> Timidity

This one just happens randomly on my G4. It seems to occur
consistently on an i386 machine and a G5. Enable sound and it will
happen when starting up the game.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Download [](http://sourceforge.net/project/
  2. Enable sound
  3. Crash should occur on startup.

I remember seeing a Timidity bug entry related to this that stated it
was fixed.
