No, but I looked and found no technical details that'd let me make
specific suggestions.  I see the you have the Irig audio "almost working"
but am left unclear on what does work and what doesn't.

If and when I get to a browser with https support maybe then I'll be
able to see the contents of the 3 bugs mentioned in the "Audio_reflock_
variables" section, if you think they're relevant you can speed up the
process by either pointing me to a non-encrypted way of viewing them
or just E-mail their text to me.
