Actaully, the voice queue is dumped in this fashion (and I've put some
debugging in here to prove that it is dumping correctly).

I think the problem is that the MP3 voice data has already been sent to the
decoder or PCM buffer, and there's currently no way to reverse that.

I don't have an iPod, but would be interested to know if the above patch
improves voiced scrolling much...
