Oh... I never brought rhythmbox to play a sound -- it segfaulted shortly
before (probably related with the gconf error-messages and the failed
%post scriptlet).

But: UI guidelines which allow that a start-button becomes a stop-button
are crap (probably copied from M$ Windoze). I do not want to count how
often I pressed 'stop': there should be silence regardless if I pressed
1, 23 or 42 times the 'stop' button.
