Alarm sound while camera is active


My application activates the Bold camera using jsr-135.  I've noticed that if I set a new alarm using the Calendar "New Alarm" option from the menu, and time comes, it wouldn't play the sounds if camera is on at that moment, but would only show its message.  Other types of audible events that occur while camera is on are sound ok (reminders, incoming SMS etc).


I've verified that the very same thing happens using the Bold native camera application, so I am thinking it has something to do with the device audio driver being used by the camera and not handled correctly by the native Alarm function. 

Any idea?


I am using Bold v4.6.0.65


Thanks, Adi.
