Last time I checked there seemed to be a bug in FB II with SOUND END. It 
stops playing the sound, but it doesn't release the sound handle's memory. 
It's not a problem if you only play a few small sounds (playing the same ones 
over and over is not a problem), but if you play lots of different sounds, 
you'll eventually run out of memory and crash.
