I think I see more-or-less what happens. It works in 0.13.1 but not in the trunk.

Because of some code that was added to check the endianness of the sound file, in combination with some older code, we eventually came to a situation where the sound system had been initialised while currentCD was 0, so _currentCowFile was 0. The next time newScreen() was called with currentCD != 0, it did not close the sound file before trying to reopen it. This led it to read the header from somewhere early in the file, rather than at the very beginning.

I have changes things slightly so that initCowSystem() is a no-op if currentCD is 0, and so that newScreen() checks _cowFile.isOpen() instead of _currentCowFile to see if it needs to call closeCowSystem(). Either of these changes should be enough on its own.
