Well this worked for me. I'm opened to better solutions and to resend
a patch but it's no clear to me how to proceed.

Out of curiosity I did a search in Openmoko if someone noticed the
same problem and found some people that had 8 bit ringtones sounding
awful on the neo/forerunner. But they just resampled them to 16bit
44khz and lived happy. Unfortunately for consultants there is always
the customer that wants to play that old 8-bit 11khz wav with the
vocal announcement from 10 year ago.
