Thanks... yes I see/hear it all now.... I was viewing it on a session
of firefox pulled across the network with `Xming', and homed at a
machine where I never have sound activated....  I often run emacs-gnus
that way on a windows machine and when I click a link it runs firefox
from the remote linux (no sound) machine and running in the Xming session.

I just lost track of which firefox instance I was viewing from.
