[patch] expmed.c: Fix a read acesss to uninitialized memory.


Attached is a patch to fix a read acesss to uninitialized memory.

Consider the recursive call to synth_mult shown in the patch.  Right
above that, note that we forget to initialize new_limit.latency, which
later causes a read acesss to uninitialized memory.

Found by valgrind while compiling combine.c.

Tested on i686-pc-linux-gnu.  OK to apply?
