Summary 08421: stakwin: Sound stuck in infinite loop bug
Description After finishing the first race, the music will get stuck in an infinite loop.

The music should stop after each race, but it just continues over and over in an infinite loop for the rest of the game.
Steps To Reproduce 1. Start playing the game as normal.

2. Finish the first race (the bug is most likely to happen if you finish in the top 3 and qualify for the next race).

3. At the end of the race, the music will get stuck in an infinite loop for the rest of the game.

Though the description differs, it's the same as this bug?:

No, this is a different bug.

That bug is reporting sound cutting-out, but i am reporting looping music.

For me at least, the problem always occurs if the nvram hasn't yet been written, as in first time the game is run.

The next time of running the game, it seemed to be ok.

The error log shows missed reads of the soundlatches. [soundlatch2] is always missed, but [soundlatch] is only missed on the first run - this is where the problem comes from.

Confirmed at 9:50 in my video here

Bonus stage audio won't stop playing until I reset the game with F3. Happened again later in the video.

Sound effects die and the currently playing music continues forever. Same bug as the other one, just at a different point in the game.
