No. The terminal beep sound is generated through the AWACS chip, so it
isn't possible to force the beep to work while sound is playing.

Right click in the XMMS window, choose Options -> Preferences. Under
Audio I/O Plugins, in the Output Plugin box, click Configure. Choose the
Mixer tame, then check the "Volume controls Master not PCM" checkbox.
That will change the volume control to use the master volume level
instead of the (nonexistent) wave output channel.
