...or, depending on the nature of the event that caused the beep, merely 
a SAL_LOG.  See 
for a (potentially unhelpful) differentiation of the two's intended uses.

The general idea is that SAL_WARN is for events that "do not normally 
happen."  And something like "in the Basic IDE, user attempts to set a 
breakpoint on a line that contains no code" (whether or not that is 
something that used to trigger a beep; I did not check) in my 
interpretation does not fall into that category and thus should be 
logged with SAL_LOG.  But a somewhat gray area indeed...
