Either that or we should find out why the zero gain takes more processing
and try to get that fixed in OpenAL.

I believe the maximum length of scripted sound is 10 seconds, so it could
basically drop of after that if you are out of range.

Is there some way I can check if I am experiencing this same issue, I have
also have regularly sudden FPS large drops without any obvious reason. Going
from like ~30 to >10 fps. But it always recovers after some time (minutes),
it keeps happen in intervals the entire time.
