The WindowMaker process typically *replaces* the shell interpreting the
.xinitrc script, you can notice that by the "exec" keyword in front of
it. Thus everything after the exec statement will be ignored.
By the way, there is another solution to disable the beep, which is
independant of X11, works also in the console:
$ echo set bell-style visible >> ~/.inputrc
When bash starts, the readline library reads ~/.inputrc. For csh I
And there is a global setting for disabling the system bell in the Gnome
Sound Desktop Preferences if you are using Gnome. In Gnome Terminal as
well in the profile edition dialog.
