Tab-Completion sound/terminal bell sounds awful now that CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP is enabled

Description of problem:
Since updating to 22.214.171.124-152.rc2.fc10.x86_64 the terminal bell that for example makes noise when tab-completion in a gnome-terminal is used sounds really awful. Even worse: I can't make it shut up -- I tried to mute the beeper with alsamixer -c 0, but that has no effect :-/
I suppose enabling CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP is the reason for this new behavior. Is there a way to disable that support during runtime? I looked at http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=1cd2224cd01898a13138f4ab476932cfb689839e and the output from modinfo snd-hda-intel, but could not see anything obvious to disable it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
There should be a new volume control for the beeper. You might have to add it to the default mixer tracks in Gnome, or use alsamixer.
Also going into the Gnome settings and turning it off should work (the Sounds tab)
As mentioned or IRC; 2.6.28-0.129.rc8.git2.fc11.x86_64 is able to mute the beeper; I suppose this patch from the 2.6.28-rc is the reason:
But whatever; you afaics disabled CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP, so this problem is fixed
