[Pkg-lxde-maintainers] Bug#610190: lxde-common: beeps in xterms don't work anymore

Package: lxde-common
Version: 0.5.0-4
Severity: normal


Since a while text-mode applications (irssi, mutt, vim, ...) don't 
produce any beeps anymore. According to the beep(1) manpage this seems 
to indicate a permissions problem, since 'beep' works, but 'beep `tty`' 
aborts with an ioctl error.

Beeps work fine with openbox-session, xfce4-session, startkde set as 

I also tried to downgrade lxde-common and lxsession to the older version 
available at snapshot.d.o, but it didn't help.
