Indeed - on Win98, when I disable the default sound altogether (in
other words, HKCU/AppEvents/Schemes/Apps/.Default/.Default.current/@
is now zero-length), then MessageBeep(MB_OK) did indeed fall back to the
same faint motherboard beep that I was always getting from MessageBeep(-1).

I think you mean MessageBeep, not MessageBox.
Well, MSDN did document that on NT 4.0, MessageBeep(-1) calls Beep(), which
forwards on to the client, whereas all other message beep parameters are
not forwarded (but talk about confusing language to read).
