I've defined an alternative wav-file for notifing me if a new mail arrives but
Thunderbird doesn't play the wave file (in the prefs window too).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Define an alternative wav-file for notifies
2.Wait for a new mail
3.

Actual Results:  
No sound is played

Expected Results:  
The alternative sound should be played
Severity: normal → major
I think a found the bug:
After selecting the alt. wave file TB writes the complete path to the file
without a trailing "file://" into the depending field. After adding "file://" in
front of the path the sound is played correctly.
Reproduceable with Mozilla Thunderbird 0.5 (20040302)
do you know if this works in mozilla 1.6 or 1.7a for you?
I have a fix for this if adding a file:// to the front caused this to start
working again.
