apparently I badly misunderstood the use of g_alloca(). Shame on me.

Good enough, but not perfect and therefore I'm giving the comment. ;). It
doesn't need fixing yesterday, it's just something we'll want to do

And for Dave: I know we're not realtime, but we can aim to make it as
realtime as possible. In this case, the amount of g_malloc()s can be
greatly reduced without complicating code. That should be worth doing,
even if we don't aim to be 100% realtime. I'm really not trying to make
all buffer allocations realtime, I'm not that far off the world yet.
