My BBC Master - - - getting Beeped-off.

Hi Devin, Hi Mark,

thanks for looking into this. So it appears that the fact that after setting
the beeploudness to 100 it is far to low for MacOS 10 and one starts to hear
anything above about 6500000 and then up to 16777472.
Since setting the beeploudness to -1 makes an unhealthy noise with 10.5.6 I
filed this as a minor bug in the qualitycenter under #7801


When I set the Alert Volume on my MacBook Pro 10.5.6 to maximum using  
the System Preference pane, then do 'put the beepLoudness, I get  
'16777472'; when I set it to minimum the beepLoudness is 0. Setting  
the beepLoudness to -1 gives the same results Berndt and Mark got. If  
I do 'set the beepLoudness to 16777472' it restores the max beep  
volume. But the Sound preference pane interface is not updated until I  
exit the Sound pane and return to it. I can set the beepLoudness to  
50% like this: 'set the beepLoudness to 16777472/2'.
