Can anyone else reproduce this 'bug'



Hi Raman,

Yes, it does seem odd and while not yet eliminated, I think a alsa versus pulse
difference is unlikely. I will try at home tonight to see if I can reproduce on
my 64 bit box running espeak and will find time to switch my work box back to
alsa, just to eliminate the issue. More tinkering is required to narrow things
down. I've not done any real diagnosis yet, but will look into it over the next
week. At least now I have a reproducible recipie, which should make things easier.
