Well, that's really odd.  Of course what's in your columns is
programmable under View->Set display items.  I had removed the "Mark"
column as I don't use it for anything.  I put it back as a test and
sure enough.  If I click on the Mark column, the beep comes back.  I
have no idea why my results are the opposite of everyone else.  Ubuntu
