Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: thunderbird

I have downloaded email incoming wav files from the net, I have stored
these in my personal folder and from there have installed these in
Thunderbird as the default for incoming notification of mail.

However, on trying the said sound all I hear is a static buzz, I've
Goggled this and found several sites where others have reported same

These sites are several Months old in the information discussed and so
of no value as to the rectification of the bug.

Has there been a download patch made available for solving this bug
issue or is there a Thunderbird update which does same?

It is annoying to be doing things with my machine and not hear any
incoming mail alerts, especially if these have to be replied to quickly.

I'm using Thunderbird on the latest Ubuntu 9.04 with all its updates
installed, I like the look etc. of Thunderbird but if this bug can't be
irradicated then I will revert back to Evolution.
