Various solutions (the first one works on some machines, but not
everywhere, and I don't know why):

1. "xset -b" in your .xsession or whatever is run (this will disable
   the beep also in other applications, which is fine, IMHO).

2. With gdm, set SoundOnLogin=false in "/etc/gdm/gdm.conf".

3. With gdm3, the /etc/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaults config file can be
   changed to have:

   /desktop/gnome/sound/event_sounds               false
