Excellent suggestion! Turns out I can't get a beep from a terminal
of any kind on F11/x86_64, but I get noises from a whole bunch of
other apps (e.g. Firefox). For the time being I've decided just
to play a WAV file in my alarm clock program, but if the F12 upgrade
doesn't fix the terminal beep, I'll add it to my Linux rainy-day list.
