Strange, on both of my test systems here, the sound seems to work fine. 
Can you guys do a bit of checking for me on this?

First, make sure your sound backend is set to gstreamer, the xine plugin 
doesn't work from what I understand, its still experimental. Next try 
bringing up the "notifications" section in "system settings", and play 
some of the sounds. Do you hear anything at all? If not, then try these 
two things.

Open up xterm, and run "tail -f .xsession-errors", and then try playing 
a sound in the notifications panel again. Do you see any error messages? 
Then lastly, in xterm, try running "xine", and open up a sound file, 
such as a MP3 or something, do you hear sound from it?
