When notified of new news the sound is repeated at least 6 times even if there is only 1 new message. This happens with any wav file on Ubuntu 12.04 with v0.17.7 or v0.18.2. Pressing Play in Options, Notifications, Sound repeats playing the file twice. Is there a possible workaround until the bug is fixed?
