I'm using speaker-test in an Ubuntu-specific bug triaging 
script/application ("ubuntu-bug audio"), and without showing the 
terminal that speaker-test outputs. So when the stream cannot be opened 
for one reason or another, my application hangs indefinitely and the 
user cannot report the bug.

Looking at the code, seems like Takashi removed all error loops except 
this one four years ago, so there shouldn't be any controversy in 
removing this one as well.
