@ricardisimo Totally. Besides the startup/shutdown sounds, many session-specific sound effects do not work.

This is explained in the following bug:

I was told this gnome issue is not a priority and that contributors are welcome to fix the bug. I agree this isn't a major bug that will crash your system, but it's nice to have sounds that work as expected.

I don't mean to sound hash, but I find the new "Sound theme" concept/interface to be buggy, confusing and incomplete.
It would be nice if sound effects could get some love before karmic rolls out.
