Sorry that I don't/didn't have time to personally revise this problem...

Actually though, I wouldn't call it 'abuse'... it's very common in the
media world to use the sample clock as a sync reference for non-audio
related timing. For example, most MIDI sequencers (which are not related to
audio at all) do. I first noticed that when I accidentally switched the
Finalizer (which is the master clock in my setup) from 44.1 to 48 kHz, 
and my song suddenly ran at 139 or so instead of 128 bpm :)
