If the audio is playing too fast then that would indicate that the
backup stream has different parameters to the stream it came from. A
common problem is if the main stream is 44100 hz and the backup is 22050
hz, or stereo falling back to mono. Some player/drivers just don't
handle the change in those settings midstream, causing effects like what
you are describing.
