Description of problem:
I convert a u-law file to a gsm, using toast.  Then I try to play it, but
play will refuse it, complaining: "sox: gsm: channels(-1) must be in 1-16".
This bug is apparently fixed in sox 12.17.2 (look at gsm.c line 63-65). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.(Start with a u-law file.  May happen with other formats, not tested)
2.use toast to convert the file: "toast file.ul"
3.Try to play it:  play file.ul.gsm

Actual Results:  Got the error:

sox: gsm: channels(-1) must be in 1-16

Expected Results:  It should have played the file.

Additional info:

When I compiled sox 12.17.2, it worked correctly.

A later sox version is now in rawhide.
