If we ask really nice can it be a "serious" but so that we don't have to
wait *six months* for it to be fixed? ;-)

And considering most audio apps park themselves in the notification
area/system tray, it's easy to forget they're still running.

I now know to make sure they aren't. I had no idea what the problem was.

And BTW. THANK YOU.  I don't know where you came from, but I've never
gotten responses so quickly from somebody with an address
till I happened upon you recently.

Whatever you do, stay with us! :-)  LOL

Now if we could just get an Ubuntu person to hang out in, that would *really* rock.
