KDE is in the process of switching every system sound to the OGG file
format. I had the same problem once, too. Some sounds were played while
others were not. I am not using arts because my soundcard supports
hardware mixing so I set up KDE to use the programm aplay (from ALSA) to
play all system sounds. Unfortunately aplay can only play WAVE files. So
aplay was called for OGG files, too. I guess your problem is similar.
I've written a little bash script which can be called instead of aplay.
It decides which program to used based on the filetype. It works with
WAVE, OGG and MP3:
