There's still a number of bugs in the old libgnome code to hook sound
events to widgets. For example, if you had a sound connected to the
combobox popping up, changing between folders in Evolution (some with
filters and some not) would trigger the sound. It obviously shouldn't.

Which is why I mentioned that I'd rather have the sound emitting code
directly in the GTK+ widgets, so we know when the widgets have been
activated programatically or by hand.
