No, it is not a bug.  It is intentional behavior.  Background refers to the
behavior of playing the sound in the background while waiting for DTMF
in the foreground.  It has nothing to do with early audio.  That is why I
wanted you to ask on the -users list.  (It is actually far more related to
WaitExten than it is related to Playback.)

We try not to answer user-level questions here, otherwise we will encourage
people to disrupt development discussions with questions that are better left
to the -users list.  That is why there is a segregation of lists.
