There's also https://gna.org/bugs/?10153, the sound problem on Linux
(the title is a bit misleading, the invalid pointers are only a problem
when compiling a debug version, and can just be commented out).

Hey, I think it's the best solution without rewriting the terrain
texture handling.

Well, I'd just add patch 845, and release a 2.0.8rc2 right now (or after
writing the release notes). Since we don't have any clues about the
causes of those three bugs (or do we?), it's no use waiting any longer
for any sudden inspirations, instead mention those bugs in the release
notes, and ask people to help find the causes (for the sound bug I have
a vague suspition of it being ALSA 1.0.14, but only because it would fit
the timeframe - so I'd like to have some data on the systems sound works
on, and those where it doesn't).
