$ totem /usr/share/wesnoth/sounds/fire.wav 
** Message: Error: Could not demultiplex stream.
gstwavparse.c(1262): gst_wavparse_stream_headers (): /play/decodebin0/wavparse0:
Invalid WAV header (no fmt at start): LIST

Looks like the file isn't properly conformant.

I've filed this against GStreamer upstream at:
