[App_rpt-users] Another webtranceiver oddity

Running Windows 7 Pro on this laptop with Firefox 9.01 and web 
transceiver works fine. I tried running the XP VM with Firefox and it 
receives OK and I can key PTT but it makes some very very strange sounds 
on transmit. (no normal audio at all). I also run OpenSuse  11.4 on 
VMware and it works fine on the web transceiver.
