Issue with loading 22kHz .ogg

This issue has really riddled me this afternoon, until i found out what it was.

When experimenting in audacity, i had by mistake saved a file as 22kHz (as opposed to 44).

When loading the sound, the app just stops. It doesn’t crash, it doesn’t throw an error or assert. It just does nothing. (To make matters worse, i had put it in a static context, so it wasn’t apparent where exactly the problem was.)

So, is there any known issue with 22kHz .ogg sounds?

Is the file stereo and the audionode positional?

Mono, actually, but positional yes.

Are you using audacity 1.2 or 1.3 beta?
