>Summary: Disable \"Unableto play sound\" popups

Initial Comment:
"Unable to play sound because the chosen file () does not exist"

I have this popup for the last year or so, usually dozens (or 
hundreds) of it. I checked the sound settings at least 50 times 
(including the config file manually), and each and every sound file 
does exist, does play the test. I think I tried to discuss this with 
several people, nobody had a guess why does it pop up.

So I don't want to open a bugreport again (I don't find my old one 
though, so if anyone insist, I'll open one again) because it seems this 
bug is a misterious curse on my machine. 

However I believe that this popup serves no useful reason, at least 
when the filename is empty (or so gaim believes for whatever reason). 
It would be nice to be able to switch it off (so I wouldn't have to close 
50 windows every day) or just making it not to pop when the 
filename seems empty (what's the point anyway; if it's empty then 
probably the user did not want a sound).

Or alternatively I'm open to any solution to prevent these loads and 
loads of popups every day...

I'm using alsa and gnome and esd, using sound method esd. I am 
using read-only sound files from the system.
