To reproduce in 12.04.1 with Compiz:

IIn Unity System Settings/Sound, Sound Effects tab, Alert Volume to a reasonable level, Mute not selected. Output volume to a reasonable level, Mute not selected. Click between various alert sounds, verify that you can hear them. If not, troubleshoot audio output before continuing.

In Compiz Settings Manager, Generall Options plugin, General tab, Audible Bell enabled.

n gnome-terminal default profile, General tab, enable "Terminal bell". At a shell prompt in the terminal window, hit backspace--no sound heard. Execute "beep" command with no parameters--no sound heard.

The workaround in Comment 41 did not change this behavior for me.
