I don't understand, an audio preview of an .ogg file copied to my
desktop works, the same file in another partition (the relevant options
for /etc/fstab are the same: defaults) doesn't. The other partition is
named "/music", my user has permission to read and write there, and it's
the Rhythmbox library's base dir).

Deleting the file on my Desktop and copying it again resulted in the
preview stopping working, but then worked on the _other_ dir (/music).
Now some of the files play on my Desktop after I copy them, some don't,
and they do play in their /music subfolder.

Changes: sox installed, permission to treat files as executables
removed, fiddled with the "allow preview of audio files" setting a bit
but left it as it was, on "Only for local files".

Nautilus sound preview doesn't work with OGG files.
