Playing WAV files

There are some complaints that when click on a .wav audio file in ROX, it doesn't stop playing. It seems that the 'wavplay' executable has this problem on some hardware.

I can't set the player to 'defaultmediaplayer' (which is Gxine) as Xine does not play WAV files properly on my laptop. So, I have set the player to 'pmusic', so you get a nice GUI -- this solution was suggested by forum member 'capoverde'.

wav from cli
pmusic is the better solution having the GUI . . . Just to remind wav files can be played from CLI with 'wavplay mysoundfile.wav' from 4.1
