Seems like my helixcode version is broke under GNOME (while esd is running)
but plays fine albeit a slight delay ~500ms if not running GNOME.
I think there a difference how long the delay is depending on file size.
(But I don't have any large audio files on this computer.)

Umm, no comment. :) My computer doesn't have the best sound card, but I'm
biased being an audio engineer.

Yep aif's don't play.

Audio File Library: error 112: failed to parse COMM chunk
