[jsyn] neverending wind in osX

Are you talking about this Applet here:
I tried it on Mac OSX. When I left the page the wind sound stopped. If it
did not on your machine then something is wrong.
Were there any messages in the "console". On Mac OSX, Java error messages
get written to a system console that can be read using the Console
application. Look for "/Applications/Utilities/Console".
When a browser leaves a web page, it is supposed to call the Applet's stop()
method. That method should cleanup, stop all user threads, and stop the JSyn
engine. When an Applet does not do this then the sound continues until the
browser is exited, or until the browser eventually calls Applet's destroy()
method and garbage collects the Applet.
