I think it must be something else. I do exactly the same thing but my 
first sound always plays. The sounds are stored in the apk package like 
yours, and I use the generic "play" command.

I wonder if it is device-related. On my Archos tablet, sounds shorter 
than one second would not play at all. It turns out this was a known 
issue with Archos. Your problem is not the same, but I wonder if you'd 
get different results if you test on a different device.

That may be too much trouble since you've got a workaround now.
