[Portaudio] Artifacts at 384 kHz sampling rate

Those screendumps seem a little to good to be true, if they really are 
of a sampled (analogue) input signal - periods exactly repeating, 
waveform exactly symmetrical, periods exactly congruent to the sampling 
period - all suggest a simple synthesised signal. If so, it would be 
good to confirm the duplication is not in fact arising from the 
synthesis. If it is indeed coming from the sound card, that would 
technically have to be called "cheating".
