When running Xfce (or any other non-GNOME-based desktop), the X11 bell event generated by XTerm and some terminal emulators does not produce any audible sound; it is lost, dropped, or ignored somewhere.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Install xterm
- Start xterm
- type 'echo ^G'
- Or, install the 'xkbbell' utility and run it, or run xbiff, irssi, or any program that makes a bell/beep. (Hell, even firefox makes this beep if you search for a word that doesn't exist on the page.)
