I hate to say this, and longtime readers of this list should SIT DOWN NOWfor your own safety, but you've exposed a bug, Lee. It turns out that theDirectSound and MMSYSTEM paths work as expected (play, pause, play resumesfrom the pause position) but that the DirectSound 3D path does not (thefinal play restarts the source).Sorry we missed that -- implementing a fix is now on my near-term to-do list.
Nowt to do wi' us. There's something broken in the OpenAL code by the looks of it. What platform is this on?Cas
