experience is that the waveforms that are displayed are not accurate enough
and I need to nudge a couple (or sometimes even more) frames forward or
backwards to get it to sync perfectly. This I can do either visually or
when I let both audio sound at the same time. Any delay in between them
means they are not in sync even though the waveforms are. But that is most
likely a discussion I should bring up with the Kdenlive people.
