Hmm, that's odd. When I play them with -ao alsa9, I hear the last part
repeated. Hpissed.wav goes like "Make up your mind your ma-" and
Sword1.wav sounds like "choonk-click bop". With -ao oss or -ao sdl,
neither file plays at all. If I use -ao pcm, then audiodump.pcm behaves
just like the original.
