Re: [Bug-gnubg] bug in latest build 040405

hi Jon,
we had a mail-discussion about a week ago concerning an MS-DOS message
appearing when opening GNU with build 040405. I wrote that I will report you
of what happens when I will be able to try a new build on Nardy's site.

Well there is a new build on Nardy's site now (040408) but unfortunately I
get the same problem again: When opening GNU after having installed the new
build I get the MS-DOS-window saying: 'Error playing sound file:
Windows error: Die angegebene Datei wurde nicht gefunden.' (...which means:
The file in question was not found.)

Moreover I want to refer to your question of the last e-mail: Does the sound
play with gnubg too? Answer is Yes, when opening GNU I can hear the
fanfare-sound while the error-message is appearing.

What is also interesting (imo) is the following: When opening GNU there
first appears a Window with the GNU-animal on it (with the blue menu line on
the top saying: Starting GNU-backgammon...), and at the bottom of this
window (=on the grey area) I can recently see the following text: 'Doing
nothing in particular'
Strange, isnt it?!?
But this window appears generally only for some moments and then the
backgammon board pops up.

Finally the second question which you ask in your last e-mail: 'Ignoring the
error message window (don't close it), do more messages appear as other
sounds play?'
The thing is: I only use Gnu for analyzing my Online-matches on the
GamesGrid server so I think I normally dont hear other sounds than when
starting GNU and I think when an analysis is finished. Fact is that I only
became aware of such error-messages when I opened the software.
