Even so I doubt it will be very reliable :(

I did create a diff that might help but noone tested it (and I don't 
have an MGE UPS handy at the moment to test it myself)

Note that while this will still cause data to be dropped it should a) 
log the fact, and b) do it in a way that doesn't cause the UPS driver 
to get out of sync.

ugen should really be fixed to not use clist buffers but that can wait 
for another day :)
