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 
for this. 

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.
