sorry no idea, just a me too. I use SuSE 9.1 pro with KDE 3.3.2a from 
SuSE. It started with the notification sound to not work as I upgraded to 
3.3.1 (IIRC) (so 3.3.0 and before worked). There I was able to use the 
external playback application to make it work again. But with 3.3.2a I had 
no luck. Sound and the test-button in the sound settings are working. I 
can play sounds from the commandline with artsplay, no matter if ogg or 
wav. But trying to test hear the sounds in the notifacation configuration 
dialog does not work, as it also does not work later on.
There was an unconclusive thread about this issue before on this list.
