If you're just issuing one long-running command that occasionally pops a bell, you could run the command with the output piped to less. This seems to have done the trick for me: annoyingcmd | less -R (The -R flag allows for colors to be displayed)

The simplest and least destructive way to stop processes that run in your user space is to logoff, and logon again. If you kill a process, it can't save any data correctly.
