Ok, On XP, I seem to be able to drop MP3's on the 3.8 and 3.9 World just
fine and a soundplayer appears and the file plays fine. But, not on 3.10
squeak-dev (3.10beta #7145) - the result is the file contents in a
system window; no soundplayer morph.
Is this a symptom that others see? If so, I'll write it up on mantis.
