I have uploaded a track that cuts off. Unfortunately, I don't know
how to apply patches and such. It would probably be a good idea to
learn, since then I could create voice files as well, but I really
don't have the time right now to learn what sounds like a complicated
and time-consuming process. Once something is part of the daily
builds, I'll be glad to test it out though.
