It was the one mentioned by the others.  That fixed both the event clicks (e.g. 
new window opened) and the hover clicks.

I am using Mandriva 2010 Free with Xfce 4.6.1.  I have libcanberra0-0.22 
installed and pretty well the whole of Xfce is dependent on it.  If I remove 
it, I remove 100 dependent packages, including system tools.  One could say 
that it is absolutely necessary.  Sometimes my package manager gives a 
warning: "Without this your system won't run" - or something to that effect, 
but in this case it doesn't go quite that far.

The startup sound for Xfce is the same as for KDE, but I don't know if that is 
Mandriva, or because I have enabled KDE integration.
