[maemo-developers] Notification events don't produce any sound or vibration

Hi, I don't know if this is the right place to ask about this, I hope it

I'm having this problem, there are some more details in this bug report:

Basically I won't get any help from Nokia unless I reflash so I hope
I can get some help here.

To summarize the bug report, I'm not getting sound or vibration on any
notification, including alarms (calendar, clock, set by applications),
incoming SMS, or IM, or even calls.

It's not a hardware problem (or it's a very selective one) because I can
reproduce sounds and the device vibrates at start when showing the Nokia

If you see the dbus-monitor capture in the bug report, I confirmed the
same pattern of getting a Stop immediately after the PlayEvent is
called for incomming IM messages, so I'm very suspicious about that,
which doesn't look right at all, at least without knowing anything about
that interfaces.

Since I don't know much about Maemo architecture, and I'm not very
familiar with dbus either to be honest, I just found out about
dbus-monitor searching for information about this problem, is getting
really hard for me to debug this problem to try to have a working phone
again without having to reflash, which I consider a very drastic
measure for a device running an opensource platform (one of the main
reasons I bought this phone :).

Anyway, any pointers, tips or help on how to proceed to debug (and fix)
this will be extremely appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
