Bug Description

I was using the autotalent LADSPA plugin with Audacity, and I noticed that it kept crashing occasionally. I used gdb to track down the cause of the crashes, and I noticed that there were two problems with autotalent:

1) A potential division by zero during normalization of audio data may occur, and
2) Several uninitialized Autotalent struct member variables may be used.

Attached is a patch that addresses these problems. I no longer notice Audacity crashing with the patched plugin.
