trouble with latest git, espeak, and PulseAudio

I've noticed an issue on updating to the latest git from Luke's repo.
Once done, I now have the issue where speech dispatcher seems to be
buffering too much, i.e. when reading letter by letter it will not read
each letter but will wait until the next letter is read, then it will
read both of them. However, no adjusting of AudioPulseMinLength in
speechd.conf is clearing this up now. It is also affecting some
punctuation marks in the same way, the period for example. I'm noticing
the same problem both when using the pulse backend and the libao backend
through Pulseaudio, leading me to believe it's not backend specific. Can
anyone else reproduce this? I'm using the espeak module, with the rate
cranked all the way up to 100 (equiv to 390 wpm in espeak) with the U.S
english voice. This happens with both Orca and Speechd-up. Turning the
rate down to 80 stops this from happening, but for me that is
torturously slow. It does seem to indicate a buffering issue though, as
lower rates generate more audio data and fill the buffer faster.
Can anyone else reproduce?
