Pads often negotiate a format that is later renegotiated when more
information is found, particularly when the vorbis stream is
actually decoded.  See also bug #137556.

Although I didn't run gstreamer and osssink directly, I ran the
oss_probe test program on about 10 different sound cards, and got
good results everywhere.  However, these were all pretty decent
hardware.  I expect bugs on crap hardware, but osssink in 0.8.0
is just differently buggy on such hardware.

I strongly encourage pushing 0.8.1 now.  We've (especially Benjamin
and Ronald) have fixed a ton of bugs since 0.8.0.
