Oops. I should rather shut up if I don't know the language... ;-(

I see. But it works under SDL/Linux so the problem MUST be either in win32 or
SDL-dx5 (if you don't use DIB version). I think I do remember some problems with
DirectX and arbitrary frequencies, but I can't say I'm 100% sure.
Wouldn't the easiest solution really be to convert your samples to 11025? You
could use SOX to convert it..
