Strange, Debian/sid running here which can be considered rather new

The melodious whistling, chanting and humming tone of the milwaukee
can be heard whenever a public lavatory is entered. It is the way the
occupants of the cubicles have of telling you there's no lock on their
door and you can't come in.
