Hum... IIRC there was a change upstream (GNOME) about this and now
libcanberra handles system sounds using speakers in favor of the
motherboard beep but I don't remember exactly what is the current status
However, I can hear a short beep coming from the internal speakers of my
netbook in wheezy when shutting down/restarting the system while gnome-
terminal produces no beep at all.
