I have the same problem.

The wierd thing is I had this same system running with sound 
perfectly when I was running Progeny.  I upgraded to woody and 
it hasn't been the same since.

All I seem to get to work is the gtk-events/toggled, 
gtk-events/clicked, and the sound for closing windows.  What's 
really strange is I can't get any of the sounds under gnome 
control center Multimedia->Sound->Sound events to play at all.   
However, I installed the esound sound monitor applet and 
right-click->Manager->Samples, when I click on these, they all 
play perfectly?!

I'm at a loss as well.
