[Speex-dev] Fwd: Re: Fixed Point on wideband-mode: Single Frame loss on 2000 Hz sine causes "freak off"

Now that's an interesting analysis! Thanks a lot for spending the time to dig
into this. I now think the whole idea of adding a small value to the error was
misguided from the beginning. Instead, what the code should probably do is just
stop once the error has reached a small enough value (and set the remaining LPC
coefs to zero).
