I'm slightly worried that you're treating the symptom here as opposed
to addressing the cause. Or my system at least the distance model
defaults to AL_INVERSE_DISTANCE_CLAMPED. Perhaps
AL_LINEAR_DISTANCE_CLAMPED would be better? Certainly much more like
what you've done with this patch.
The fact that we don't explicitly set the distance model anywhere (with
alDistanceModel) is probably most of the problem here. It would
certainly explain why the attenuation is apparently fine for some
people and horrible for others.

Any chance you could use mime encoding for PGP signatures
(application/pgp-signature) ? Just a pet peeve of mine :p.
