my Sox play tool plays the file, then it freezes. The
remaining process does not answer on Ctrl-C nor on signal
TERM. It only can be removed by signal KILL.

The frozen output is:

  $ play somesound.wav


   File Size: 80.4k     Bit Rate: 128k
    Encoding: Signed PCM
    Channels: 1 @ 16-bit
  Samplerate: 8000Hz
  Replaygain: off
    Duration: 00:00:05.02

  In:81.5% 00:00:04.10 [00:00:00.93] Out:32.8k [      |      ]        Clip:0

What could be going on here?

The version numbers:

  $ play --version
  play:      SoX v14.4.2
  $ uname -a
  FreeBSD 10.3-STABLE FreeBSD 10.3-STABLE #0 90279c2(tweaks/10): Tue Jul 19 23:44:18 CEST 2016 root at  i386

Thanks in advance.
