My BBC Master - - - getting Beeped-off.

Started wondering about BEEP, so tried a single button stack
with the following code:
set the beepLoudness to 50
1. Runtime Revolution 2.1.1
2. Metacard 2.5
on Ubuntu 8.04.2
Having had no beeps on Mac OS X or Ubuntu I wonder if the statement:
"Sounds the system beep." isn't simply a lie?
"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."
is very odd, as I am unable to hear a simple beep. AND, before anybody
makes funny comments about my hearing I have no problem hearing BBC
Micro system beeps.

Would be grateful if anybody has any free time to repeat this simple
experiment on a many Operating Systems as they have access to . . .
A Thorn in the flesh is better than a failed Systems Development Life Cycle.
