G'day Bill,

You said you aren't hearing any other sounds while an explosion sound
plays out?  Are you sure about that?  With COW on Linux, sounds are
layered using SDL so that multiple events are mixed together over time.

If NetrekXP mixes sound, perhaps lowering the amplitude of the explosion
sound will make the mix sound better.

I've skill with sound editing ... but I'd need to know which way
NetrekXP works before I do anything to them.
