Last-minute Woof fixes

I am now building Precise Puppy 5.5-final, after some testing, will probably upload it late tonight or early in the morning (Perth, Australia).

I have managed to put in a couple of fixes.

Fixes for 'remasterpup2' by npierce:

Also, I think that I have fixed 'grubconfig', by using '--stdout' option for Xdialog to separate stderr messages.

trash noise!
For some reason putting stuff into the trash or emptying the trash makes a belching noise! Just make sure that is not the case.

Apologies if you already dealt with this

such never learned in school
Needed to google "belching"

Perhaps someone could give a codeline to record

Noise still there in Precise 5.5
Just installed Precise 5.5.... belching noise is there when putting something in trash or emptying trash.
Otherwise, looks good so far. More in the forum.

Re belch
Ha ha, a bit uncouth!

There was someone, can't recall the name right now, who who fixed the Trash. It had a few things wrong with it. I am not sure if that burping sound file was there before or got introduced. It may have been there before, but not used.

Anyway, I have already uploaded Precise 5.5.

Re belch
I probably should ask for a vote on this, to get the majority of opinion. Is it too unbecoming of Puppy to have that burp/belch sound?

I will be creating a service pack for Wary/Racy 5.5 very soon, so can change the file then.

re noise
As James said, my fix should work across the board. It's a dummy pet that has a the deletes the "belch" then links back to 2barks.wav

Some may find it amusing, others offensive, so revert it please.

re noise
Another vote to revert back.
