Description of problem:
The help text says the test sounds will come from right, left and center, in
that order. The test sounds actually come in left-right-center order.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Read help text.
2. Click the sound test button.
3. Notice discrepancy.
Actual Results: Actual sound and described sound conflict with each other.
Expected Results: The description should match the actual sound.
This was observed on a Dell Inspiron with hardwired speakers. After
installation, I found the sample sound file and copied it over to an iMac
running Mac OS 9.x; that also has hardwired speakers and played the test sound
the same way, so I know that it's not a hardware problem with my Inspiron.
Either the help text needs to be modified to match the sound file (swap the
words "left" and "right"), or the sound file needs to be modified to match the
documentation (swap the left and right channels of the file).
