Erik, when it did that, I thought I needed an excorcist. You really had
to hear the sounds it was making, and the way it was acting was just
insane. I had a similar problem with Windows once like this, I got NANs
into all my audio data by accident, but Windows just froze up. At least
on Linux it is possible (but painful) to get the application to
eventually close.

I can't imagine that such a simple NAN could bring your computer to it's

Now if I only new what a NAN was other than it is not a number.

I am going to make an album NAN is not a number, and I will put NANs
into all my controls and audio, and sample them, and then the world can
be horrified by the sounds of a computer program that is dying.
