The reason for there being stuff in there it can't currently handle is

Are you using esd ?  esd agitates the problem, which is a result of the
fact that I can't do any kind of flow control with festival.  There is no
"okay, I'm done speaking what you just submitted" signal returned that I
could wait for before sending more.  That is... bad, in my opinion.  
I actually don't have the latest version of festival (there isn't a debian
package yet, and I prefer to wait).  If the latest version does not have
this feature, I will definately be attempting to talk to the creators of
festival about it.

Actually, if one of you people who've installed the latest version (check
version #s on the festival site if you don't know) could run speechd w/ a
-f (run in forground) and paste me some output (I'm looking for the lines
starting w/ "festival:"), that could help a lot.
