Thanks for the fix, I'll apply it ASAP. By the way I couldn't find a file
called trevor-sound.diff, however there was one called trevor-sound.21102,
I'm assuming this was the fix. A transition from awk to perl might be
easier as perl already provides the tools and has the error handling code
you need.
