I also had both problems after a fresh install of Mint 15 64 Bit, no login- and alert sounds.
The proposed command "gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.sound event-sounds true" finally fixed it but also no sounds except for the default sound is selectable.

So both problems are not a user-fault but generally faulty, mayb dependent on hardware configuration.
