Add File Chooser: help link now opens its new manual entry

Change Audio: clarified « Preload by name » appearence in event sheet
Bug Fix Node-webkit: preloading by name a sound that did not exist would cause « All preloads complete » to never be true
Bug Fix Possible issue using signalled waits with savegames
Bug Fix Ejecta: game would not start if ‘Preload sounds’ set to ‘Yes’
