SAM: Music stops at Bumpusville

Sam & Max, English "talkie" version, latest CVS snapshot.

At Bumpusville, if I leave the house and then enter it
again the music stops. Did it do that in the original,
as well?

This is due to the check at the bottom of
IMuseInternal::ImSetTrigger(). (I'd give a line number, but at
the moment my local module is heavily modified from CVS.) An
attempt to set up a "start song" command to fire on a trigger
will cause that song to stop playing if it's already playing. This
fixes some carnival music issues, but is probably something of
a hack.

In Bumpusville, a trigger is set up to start the "interior" music
once the "exterior" music is finished. Once you're inside the
house, though, the "interior" music continues playing even if
you walk back outside. Consequently, when you enter the
house again, the "interior" music is set to start on a trigger,
and since it's already playing, it gets stopped.

There are two ways to deal with this:

(1) Remove the check mentioned. This may cause carnival
music regressions, but I suspect the behavior of the carnival
music can be fixed in other ways.

(2) Refuse to set up a trigger for a song that's not currently
playing. In this case, since the "exterior" music is not playing,
the trigger should not be set up. I have this vague
recollection, however, that in certain areas triggers for a song
may be set up just before a song starts playing. I used to
have the iMuse triggers tracked in each Player object, until I
discovered that sometimes a trigger needs to be remembered
when there's not even a Player object for that song yet.

Since I can't recall under what circumstances the latter
situation occurs, I will focus on making the former change and
then just trying to fix up whatever carnival music breaks as a
