yes, sorry. I forgot to mention that it hangs on the command-line too, so I
don't think it is related to clm or my lisp version (cmucl). It just creates
that annoying side effect if run from within clm. The soundfiles don't have
any extra space at the end, and play out properly if just using 'play' or any
other player/editor. sndplay hangs with every soundfile I have tried so far.
