Oops, I didn't notice Lennart's earlier reply to the rate question...
Since the loopback module doesn't depend on the source's reported rate,
but resamples according to empirical history data, I think the behaviour
that I described above shouldn't happen even if the reported sample rate
from the tv card driver is completely bogus.
