I use fvwm2 as window manager on an ubuntu system. This means that applications that use the gnome style libraries run fine, but it can be a bit harder to find the settings. I was playing with pavucontrol (another gnome app) when I noticed the setting 'system sounds volume' made the boingo noises come back when a window popped up such as a thunderbird password window or an gnome-ssh-askpass window. The definitive solution is to start gnome-conf-editor and disable boolean /desktop/gnome/sounds/event/sound/event_sounds. Silence again. Sound can be nice when playing music or viewing video but I don't want a sound every time I have to type a password/passphrase.
