Yeah. Get down on your hands and knees and pray hard that it stays that way.
To be serious, I turn it off wherever it might possibly rear it's ugly head.
vim/gvim in ~/.vimrc:
set vb " visualbell
The idea of my DE/WM playing a jingle on start-up is enough to send a shudder
down my spine :(
Blinkenlights? Yes. Noises? Hell, no.
Sorry, I've probably been of no help to you Matthias but hopefully I've been
of some help to my fellow travellers in the anti-noise camp.
