Sound Question

Hello -

I am running Afterstep 1.4.5.NN6N and have configured audio to play
sounds.  However, certian sounds never happen.  No sound on iconify,
deiconify, startup or shutdown.  How do I get these to work?? Also, I
get sound at wierd times, like evertime I move to a submenu on my
start menu and when Netscap updates it's page and sometimes when it
follows a link.  Here are the files I believe are germain...

My Audio File
#------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Audio
#
*AudioPath                      /usr/share/afterstep/desktop/sounds
*AudioPlayCmd                   /usr/bin/play
*AudioDir			/usr/share/afterstep/desktop/sounds
*AudioDelay                     1
*Audio  startup                 meepmeep.au
*Audio  shutdown                clink.au
*Audio  add_window              bong.au
*Audio  raise_window            drip.au
*Audio  focus_change            drip.au
*Audio  destroy_window          crash.au
*Audio  iconify                 meepmeep.au
*Audio  deiconify               clink.au

My autoexec file
############################################################################
# Menus
#
#------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Execute on startup :
#

Function "InitFunction"
	Module  "I"     Animate
	Module  "I"     Wharf
	Wait    "I"     Wharf
	Module  "I"     Pager 0 3
	Module  "I"     WinList
	Module  "I"	Banner
	Wait    "I"     Banner
	Module  "I"     Audio
	Exec    "I"     sh ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/.workspace_state &
EndFunction

#------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Execute on restart :
#

Function "RestartFunction"
	Module  "I"     Animate
	Module  "I"     Wharf
	Wait    "I"     Wharf
	Module  "I"     Pager 0 3
	Module  "I"     WinList
	Module  "I"     Audio
EndFunction


Also, I'd like to have sound enabled with wharf.  However enabling the 
sound options in the wharf file causes wharf to crash (ie never start) 
when I restart my session or logout and back in again.  I can't find
any documentation on the *WharfSound and *WharfPlayer in either the
Wharf or the afterstep man pages.  The FAQ also doesn't say anything
about this.

I appreciate any help with these two items.  I am very pleased with
AfterStep.  It has come quite a ways since 1.0!!

Thanks
Jeff
