So, this will sound terrible but I'm not sure that unconditionally
shouting in the logs is the right thing to do here - people do sometimes
put non-audio signals through sound cards (using them as generic DACs
and ADCs) and it seems like it could get very spammy. Perhaps a lower
level warning message, some counters or even some control that allows
the warnings to be masked.
