Bug#509376: ogg123 exits with "Error: buffer write failed."

Package: vorbis-tools
Version: 1.2.0-5

Trying to convert a *.ogg file to *.wav, I get sometimes

	% ogg123 -q -d wav -f - "x.ogg" >/tmp/x.wav
	Error: buffer write failed.

I get the same problem using

	ogg123 -q d wav -f - "x.ogg" | lame - x.mp3

AFAICS this is not supposed to happen on a simple IO redirection.
Unfortunately it is not reproducible.

Shell is bash 3.2-4.
