The use of the read() system call in mad.c is invalid.
The return value must always be checked, because it
says how many bytes was actually read, which can be
less that the requested (and especially will be when
the stream is from the network).

Attached patch fixes this.

    Another report for the same read return value :)

    A patch has been applied to my subversion tree and I hope to
    coordinate a release inthe near future with it.
