Summary MESS-specific 07973: pce and clones [mlairj, mlair]: CD music ends before expected
Description CD tracks stop playing earlier than they should. This can be observed in the Victory music after defeating a boss.
I'm reporting this despite the "Incorrect sound" warnings because it's a regression from 0.230, where the track took longer to start but ended properly.
This is how it plays on real hardware:
Steps To Reproduce Beat any boss and the Victory track will play (I'm providing savestates with the first boss almost beaten).
Additional Information Might be worth noting that other games like Bonanza Bros now seem to start their music tracks a few seconds in, rather than at their beginning (and also don't loop).

Could be related to commit 2caa566?

PCE-CDs are strange, might need reconverting
