problem with mbrola/freetts jsapi

Hi,

i am trying to use mbrola voices with FreeTTS (using a mac os x)
i have managed to load the appropriate voices etc but as soon as an utterance is spoken my program comes to a halt outputing the following error:

java.lang.Error: No audio data read
at de.dfki.lt.freetts.mbrola.MbrolaCaller.processUtterance(MbrolaCaller.java:134)
at com.sun.speech.freetts.Voice.runProcessor(Voice.java:557)
at com.sun.speech.freetts.Voice.processUtterance(Voice.java:402)
at com.sun.speech.freetts.Voice.speak(Voice.java:284)
at com.sun.speech.freetts.jsapi.FreeTTSSynthesizer$OutputHandler.outputItem(FreeTTSSynthesizer.java:705)
at com.sun.speech.freetts.jsapi.FreeTTSSynthesizer$OutputHandler.run(FreeTTSSynthesizer.java:632)

has anybody else come across this? - i have found one post with a similar problem but with no replies!
is this a typical problem when using mbrola?
does anyone know a workaround this?

Thanks
