#8 Sound drops out and I have to restart program


I have WinXP Perf edition and the sound drops out pretty regulaarly. I usually notice it after I finish a level and get the music/applause and continue. Then I might hear a few letters and then silence, or I might get a few letters that are silent but the sound comes back.

    On OS X 10.5.6, Intel Macbook, BW 4.4 and svn, I experience what appears to be a different, but possibly related, sound issue. Sound normally works flawlessly, but occasionally BW will begin to only play the first .5 seconds or so of each sound clip. Restarting BW resolves the problem temporarily. On average, I would guess this problem appears 1 out of every 30 trials or so.

    Sound problems have also been frequently reported on the BW mailing list. We suspect that the bug is in pyglet, the audio/video library BW uses, and not in BW itself. We're currently hoping that the next version of pyglet (1.2) will rectify this issue.

    I'm having the same issue with my students. They have Windows XP prof also .. and it usually happens after the music. Can I disable the music.
