With upgrade to Quantal, Nautilus makes some sounds when moving between folders and when closing folder properties window. I have all sounds disabled from System Settings (muted) and didn't find any relevant options from Nautilus preferences. How to remove them?

I will also consider hacks (eg. replacing sound files with silent ones).

I've had the same "issue" on 14.04.Go to Preferences(System Settings) > Sound > Sound Effects and mute the alert.
