> Do you have any Python examples that failed to trigger the overflow

No, I've not really tried to create some, as I found it while looking into similar checks added to rgbimg module (which is dead and removed upstream now) in the same commit r64114.

Having another close look, I can reproduce crash with lin2lin:
  audioop.lin2lin("A"*0x40000001, 1, 4)

ratecv may cause issues too.  Other cases use for loop with multiplication product as an upper bound, so the integer overflow should be harmless in those case.

I've started looking into this on oldish python 2.4, where PyString_FromStringAndSize accepts int size, rather than Py_ssize_t.  Rest of the audioop code was using ints too.  It's possible it is ok to more to size_t in current python version.
