ah, yes... this was a question I was going to ask you about
the patch... I used the channels/bps from the latest frame
to try and keep it working even for streams where they change
in mid stream.  even though I don't know of anything that does
this, in the streaming case it could happen, and there might
not be any STREAMINFO or it might be incorrect.

I was going to change it further down also when
approx_bytes_per_frame is recalculated but couldn't tell if
this would make the algorithm unstable (not converge).

maybe it's best to not try and solve that case though.
