The audiofile library allows the processing of audio data to and

WAVE, NeXT/Sun, BICS, and raw data).

Bail out early if NeXT audio files include too many channels.

A memory leak was found due to reading not null
terminated copyright field. Preallocate zeroed memory and
always NUL terminates C strings.
