Ok. I see a SEGV with "cat >". Investigating.
Should be fixed in the current snapshot.
Thank you for taking another look at this. I've tried with the latest
snapshot, dated 2014-03-19. This behaves as follows:
cp ding.wav /dev/dsp
The above command works fine; all of the audio file is heard.
cat ding.wav > /dev/dsp
The segmentation fault is fixed - thanks. The sound is heard, but the
last 1.5s are truncated. If the wav file is less than 1.5s long then no
sound is produced.
AUDIODRIVER=ao play ding.wav
This is playing the audio through sox, which is where this whole thread
started. No sound at all, and no output to the console to indicate that
sox is attempting to play the file. The command exits (with return code
0) after a couple of seconds (approximately), irrespective of the
duration of the wav file supplied. Cranking up the verbosity with 'play
-V6' doesn't offer any assistance.
Reverting to cygwin-1.7.28-2, all of the above commands function
identically: the sound is heard but the last 1.5s are omitted, and no
sound is produced if the wav file is less than 1.5s in duration.
Sadly, I'm too busy with other matters to give this any real attention
right now. However, if we still haven't got to the bottom of this then
I'll have a dive into the code early next week.
