Oh, it's not just me!

I've been annoying everyone in the office for the last few weeks : GDM
beeps at startup, many remote servers I connect to through ssh still
have their terminal bell on (and disabling the local one in
gnome-terminal doesn't take care of them), and I now realized for
the first time that minicom plays some kind of music when it finishes
xmodem transfers!!! I'm sure co-workers thought I caught a virus from
the 80's of that I was playing some old DOS-based game...

I really thought this was an ALSA bug, because I have a "PC Speak"
mixer available, which I've always muted just in case. Shouldn't it
actually mute the PC speaker or is it something totally different?
