The click seems associated to some residual samples inside the buffer. Here it
is a sample of the king of click noise I'm hearing here (captured from CD input entry):

I've started/stopped the CD some times (with cdplay). When volume goes to zero,
after an "echoed click", it disappears.

I've did some trials with position_fix changes, but nothing solved. So, my
previous patch were wrong. The click is somewhere else (still, I suspect that
it is linked to the buffer handling).
