This was because all of the I/O operations were ignoring the archetype
for the device.  So, this is likely an old bug.

So, good news/bad news.  Good news: I checked in a fix which causes the missing
1.5 seconds to be played.  Bad news: The process now hangs in waveOutClose()
in fhandler_dev_dsp::Audio_out::stop.  There seem to be a few threads hanging
around waiting for something so obviously something isn't cleaning up right
in the audio code.
Nope.  Wrong theory.  I know what's causing this but I don't yet know how to
fix it.
This should all be fixed in the upcoming snapshot.

Thank you for looking at this. I've tried the 32-bit snapshot dated '2014-03-17', but whenever I pipe a wav file to /dev/dsp I get a segmentation fault. The error is produced immediately, and no sound is heard. I've tried wav files both longer and shorter than 1.5s.
