It feels like forever between my posts now, haha.

In the next update you won't be able to hear any sound passing through walls, 
so the problem will be a past issue.  In the current version I tend not to 
shoot at zombies behind me because I do a quick rotation test before I start 
shooting a new target.  If the sound is about center and I turn a little to the 
right, the zombie will move to my left if he is indeed in front of me.  If the 
zombie is actually behind me, the sound will move to the right.  I know this 
message wasn't talking about the trouble of zombies being behind you, but it 
reminded me to share the strategy I use.
