This beeb should be marked with media.role=event and thus should be 
adjustable via the "Sound Events" slider in pavucontrol should control 
your volume. That said, I'm not 100% certain how metacity produces this 
sound, but I suspect it's via libcanberra in which case it's definitely 
setup like that.
