Bug#519062: capisuite: Cannot convert .la to .wav using sox

Package: capisuite
Version: 0.4.5-8
Severity: normal


when capisuite's answering machine mechanism receives a voice mail, it
converts it from .la to .wav format and sends a mail containing the

This seems to be broken on my machine.

I always get mails with the message
  ERROR occured while converting file: Error while calling sox. Not installed?
  Please talk to your friendly administrator.
instead of the recorded message.

After some head scratching I found the following snippet inside
  ret = os.spawnlp(os.P_WAIT,"sox","sox",attachment,"-w",basename+"wav")

sox in its current incarnation does not support the '-w' command line
switch. Hence, this call fails.

  ret = os.spawnlp(os.P_WAIT,"sox","sox",attachment,basename+"wav")
instead, everything works OK again.
