The SDL DirectSound code has been updated, hopefully addressing the audio
quality problems on Windows. If you’ve been having troubles, please try
the DLL snapshot available here: http://www.libsdl.org/tmp/SDL.dll
If there are any audio dropouts detected, they will be written to stderr.txt
If you have problems running that, or want to play with the source, you
can grab it and define DEBUG_SOUND when you build it:
Please let me know what the results are for you.
