Bug Description

I did a fresh install of Karmic. My sound in general works. However, I no longer have any alert sounds for things like irssi hilights. I understand this is because pcspkr was blacklisted, and everything was supposed to be converted to the Gnome Alert sound as configured in the sound preferences. While I can play the alert sound in the preferences dialogue to choose one, I never hear it while actually using the system.

Disabling visual effects makes it work, so it's something between compiz and pulseaudio apparently?

Same for me: with compiz/visual effects turned on, no alert sound is audible. With compiz/visual effects tuned off, the alert sound is audible. Therefore, it might be a compiz problem.
