Well, I tried some more experiments.  I logged in to another user
running KDE, and the wav file plays fine in Tbird on that account.  I
went back into the problem account and deleted the .thunderbird
directory and let Tbird create a new one.  Selected the wav file in the
new mail sound preferences and tried a preview.  No go.  So it looks
like it is a problem specific to the one user in KDE only.  I'm not
sure what configuration files to look at in that account, and no clue
what to look for even if I knew which files to look at.  I hope someone
has a suggestion of what to look at next.
