Yep do all as above.  However on this particular issue don't expect lightning 
reaction.

Reason being that this is a _feature_ in OOo of something that is a _bug_ in 
PowerPoint.  There is nothing worse in Powerpoint than having to wait till a 
sound file finishes before you can change slides. PITA! 
In Impress, if I want a sound file to run over several slides then I simply 
change the "slides"  to transitions on a single slide.  It simply means that 
all the slides have to share a background.

However, as Huck points out, voting does affect the way developers look at 
individual issues.  Proof of this is in one particular issue that became a 
pet of mine:  Getting stylist to remember which type of styles you had 
selected when you last edited a document. 
(http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4854) I asked people on 
OOoforum to vote and that enhancement will now be in 2.3

Oh and as an aside, if you didn't know already, OpenOffice.org 2.2 was 
released yesterday. 
version count went:
2.0
2.0.1
2.0.2
2.0.3
2.0.4
2.1
2.2

So how old is your version :)
