Thanks Garry - not the answer tho'. It worked ok again today after a 
reboot but using Synaptic to add Thunderbird to the system killed the 
sound again. Seems as though running some processes do the damage.
I've tried the launchpad System Testing programme and a report has gone 
to them. I'll report back in the event that they respond but any ideas 
from plug would obviously be very welcome.
