I wonder, has there been any changes in espeak recently that might account
for sparodic termination of words before they finish? Its quite subtle and
not there all the time but several machines with different sound hardware
occasionally show this effect and often repeating the string its OK.
I'm using the master branch. I feel sure before there was often a little
tine pause before it closed the channel which isnow not there.
Its very difficult to demonstrate it, as it seems to be hit and miss.
