[Tutor] Mixer and Busy Flag Never Working?

Has anyone ever played with Pygame and the sound mixer? If so, has
anyone ever had the busy flag, and the problem below ever work?
Subject: Re: [pygame] Mixer Quit / Restart
This appears to get the total number of channels, not the number of active
channels. However, I tried using get_busy(), but it still does not seem to
See the following modifications to my original code:
import pygame, time
for x in range(10):
print("Starting iteration " + str(x))
sound = pygame.mixer.Sound("foo.wav")
print("Finding free channel")
channel = pygame.mixer.find_channel()
print("Channel object: " + str(channel))
print("Sleeping until sound is finished playing...")
This displays the same behaviour.
In response to a previous comment about using channel.stop() before quitting
the mixer: this does not work either, as can be seen by adding
channel.stop() after the get_busy loop above.
Has anyone tried running this code themselves? I am wondering if I am
experiencing some obscure bug, possibly platform specific. I am running on
OS X, but don't have access to other systems for troubleshooting. If
someone else has access to a Windows or Linux box, and is able to prove if
this fails on those systems as well, that may be useful.

This returns 0 if none are playing and > 0 if there are.
