ok - next problem - pidgin  2.5.1 - I type a name, to allow pidgin to look 
up the first match, as I have always done in the past; but only the first 
character shows up in the search buffer and no useful name is found.  What 
am I doing wrong?  Same problem when ctrl-F for a find.

The way to disable sounds is with the "Mute Sounds" checkbox in

If that is already checked, are you sure that these sounds are
actually coming from Pidgin?
