Not a bug. From the docs:
Cross-platform note: Windows and OS X do not execute the beep command
if it's issued while a beep is playing. This means that if you specify a
numberOfTimes on a Windows or OS X system, the user might hear fewer
beeps because not all of them are sent to the speaker. To ensure that
the user hears a specific number of beeps, use a loop with a wait
command (where the wait time is at least as long as the beep sound's
duration) after each beep
