 Assuming the above-mentioned "-current" referenced by netchild is
 in 6.0 RELEASE, I believe this PR was incorrectly
 (unthinkingly/disrespectfully?) closed.
 I have installed 6.0 on a box here and performed the test described
 in my previous comment on this PR.
 I added snd_driver_load and sound_load to /boot/loader.conf, and
 I downloaded/built sox from /usr/ports.
 I repeated the test described in my previous comment.  (The files do not seem to be available now.)
 To make sure that the bug is not in sox, I also tried the same
 test using wavplay.
 The results are the same from both userland programs.  The short
 files are still either truncated or completely omitted.
 I request that this PR be re-opened.  And, of course, I
 request that the bug be fixed.  I again offer to work on
 it, if given some guidance.
