Steps to reproduce on up-to-date Lucid on amd64 (Thinkpad X200s):

- System->Preferences->Sound->Sound Effects: Alert volume is at 100%, sound theme is "Ubuntu", alert sound is "Default", "Enable window and button events" is unselected.
- System sound is not muted, volume at some reasonable level (50% in my case).
- System->Preferences->Appearance->Visual Effects: Select "None", click "Close"; Window manager is metacity.
- Open Gnome Terminal: Edit->Profile Preferences->General: "Terminal bell" is selected. Click "Close".
- In the terminal's window, hit Backspace on an empty prompt. The system alert sound is played as expected.
- System->Preferences->Appearance->Visual Effects: Select "Normal", confirm the pop-up, click "Close"; window manager is Compiz.
- In same gnome-terminal window, empty prompt: Backspace produces no sound.
- System->Preferences->Appearance->Visual Effects: Select "None"; window manager is metacity again.
- Alert audible again.
- BTW, there's a compiz process still running even after the switch back to metacity: "/bin/sh -c /usr/bin/compiz-decorator".
