new atcleci.so library

Hi Raman,

just some feedback on the updated atcleci.so library. 

Running on Ubuntu 10.10 32 bit using pulseaudio and no asoundrc file I find the
sound is clear, responsive and I would suggest more stable as I don't seem to
get as many segfaults as I previously did. However, like others have noted, I
do seem to be getting some sound 'artifacts'. It would seem that every few
lines or words, you will get the first two or so characters of the last word
spoken again. So, if the last word was 'again' I would hear again ag, with a
slightly reduced emphasis on the second character. 

I have not yet tested sufficiently to tell if I get the same problem on my 64
bit based system, but wil check that tonight. 

Note also that apart from occasional segfault crashes, I've had absolutely no
issues with outloud udner pulsaudio with the previous version. I did not
experience the repeated sound artifact, though I did notice that the outloud
script did frequently report underruns, which id does not appear to be doing

The output now written by outloud when starting is
