DirectSound problems - dlls/dsound/mixer.c

Tested with Battlezone 2. Both patched and unpatched the in-game (non
movie) sound exhibits a popping sound (minor but mildly annoying) with
lines and lines of
err:dsound:DSOUND_MixInBuffer length not a multiple of block size, len =
281, block size = 4
The first error I expected to see again, and I believe that this is the
one responsible for the popping noises. The second I thought could be
rectified by your patch, which seems to have tried to pad the length to
match a block size multiple, but it appears that either I interpreted
your comments wrong or the patch did not succeed.
Also tested DeusEx - sound exhibited no errors. In the past the game had
always sounded just a bit fuzzy, although I have not played it in so
long that it might not be your patch that fixed this issue.
I've got a couple other apps that I can test. Will report back.
