Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: thunderbird

When I receive a mail, Thunderbird plays my chosen soundfile, but the rest of the application interrupt until the sound is finished.
When I receive a mail, there appears a mini-dialog with a bit information of the mail in the right-down corner of my screen.
But the first paint for that dialog is when the sound finished, so I see a gray, empy frame.

So, I think the sound must be played in a new Thread.
